2nd Sunday in Lent, Year C
Deacon Cindy Roehl

We are in the season of Lent! That season of about 40 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter. So, what is Lent? Yes, it is traditionally a time of fasting, repentance and spiritual discipline, but toward what purpose?

Our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, describes it saying, the purpose of the Loving, Liberating and Life-giving Lent is a season when we set aside time for reflection on Jesus Christ. And for reflection on who we are and who we want to be. Those words “who we are and who we want to be” implies that who we are does not need to be the end all. “Who we are and who we want to be” implies that tomorrow we can be better than we are today. That we can rise above our past, as well as our present. That’s powerful!
