Lent marks a parenthesis of time in the life of the church. It is a time set aside to pray, reflect, fast, and or study in order to better understand our journey to God.
The ashes of Lent remind us of the parenthesis of our own life. “We are but dust, and to dust we shall return”.
Like all parentheses, our own time on Earth is part of an incredibly larger reality.
God beckons us to live through the parenthesis of our own lives into this greater reality.
Love is the one force that plows through the boundaries of each of our lives and into kingdom life. Love incorporates faith and hope. Love never dies.
“God so loved the world that he gave his only son…” John 3:16 “Love one another..” John 15 The references go on.❤️
