You see, when I was growing up everyone used to say that they were giving up desserts for Lent
A Lenten discipline should have three parts to it (I know, how Trinitarian!)
(1) It should involve an action (like praying daily, or reading Scripture or faith journaling or taking a walk with God
(2) It should involve Reflection. Where does God meet me in this action? What is God through this action inviting me to do? How am I through this action drawing more deeply into God's love? And so forth.
(3) God (of course).
(And if you like four legged stools instead of three you can always add prayer as a separate thing)
Me? I'll be meeting God in the garden these 40 days of Lent. Look for my reflections in the new and revamped "Reflecting on Our Faith" portion of our worship slip where you, too, can share some insights of your Lenten journey.
