Lent Word a Day

Every day during Lent we will be sending out a "Word a Day Reflection".

It is our hope that these brief reflections will ground you in this wilderness journey.

May you be sustained along the way!

Wilderness will be our theme throughout Lent this year, as Lent does begin in the wilderness.

The Spirit guides Jesus into the wilderness where he comes face to face with temptation and struggle. Yet, in his forty days of fasting, resisting, and wandering, Jesus is shaped and formed for his ministry. Similarly, through the wilderness of Lent, we are invited to surrender to the wild leadings of the Spirit.

We rarely enter the wilderness willingly, but hopefully, through our wandering, we remember who we are and whose we are.
