It is the beginning of Lent this week, and I pray that in these forty days, I will come back to you, God. That I will turn to you again, after having been so distracted by everything that is going on in my life. That I will look to you and find welcome and home, rest and new direction.
I pray for all who are observing Lent this year, in all the various ways we are doing it. Bless every effort, and let us know that you’re with us in this experience – and that it is good to be together.
Peace be with us.
