Isaiah 50:4-9a; Hebrews 12:1-3; John 13:21-32; Psalm 70(1)
How was it to Live with Lent in 2020? How was it journeying with God at Night? At this end of Lent, I offer you some questions prompted by the Scripture from Matthew 9: 27- 34:
Review your days — where was God with Lent? Was there mystery? Consider it. Nighttime encounters? Name them. Was God silent or absent? Ponder God’s presence.
Were there difficult emotions that arose for you? Are there things that you see differently after living with Lent 2020? Are there things you find yourself speaking about differently after living with Lent 2020?
As we move into Holy Week, may the practices of Living with Lent step us towards Holy Week and the Three Days. May the movement of Christ’s passion also be present in us, and with us. And as we journey towards the nighttime of the Good Friday suffering, may the Vigil of Easter gather us, reminding us all of our baptism as beloveds and giving us hope in our days!
