This is the board on my desk and the verse I added on Ash Wednesday as a daily reminder. I didn’t realize then what these words would really end up meaning for all of us in this season.
“Lent is a much-needed mentor in an age obsessed with visible, measurable, manageable, and tweetable increase, for it invites us to walk with Jesus and his disciples through darker seasons that we would rather avoid: grief, conflict, hurt, misunderstanding, betrayal, restriction, isolation, rejection, and pain. A thoughtful Lenten journey directly confronts our modern obsession with increase and introduces us to unexpected friends of spiritual
formation.” #LentenSunday #LentenReflections #Lent2020 #MyDesk #John3:30
