L Lent provides a quiet time to listen and look at Grace in the
+ Word and Sacraments, and the
+ Word reflected in the faces of Others.
E Lent is an opportunity
+ to be enriched by God’s Grace evidenced in Christ, and encouragement
+ to engage in sharing that Grace abundantly.
N Lent is an invitation to again recall
+ the old truths,
+ the not-so-old insights that come with honesty and creativity, and
+ a new time for soul searching and soul growth.
T Lent is a time
+ to be treasured for God’s timeless presence in life,
+ for soul-feeding, and
+ soul sharing in both one’s community and in the larger world.
Prayer: Loving God, you give us special times for reflection in our lives. Bless this Lenten season with a renewed sense of your presence and Grace. Let us be generous with our sharing of that Grace and goodness to all whose lives we touch. Amen.
