Bound by Faith

A Note From Pastor Heidi

As I write this article, we are halfway through the Lenten season – “over the hump” as some might call it – it’s like Wednesday is here and we are all looking forward to the weekend! A weekend packed full of anticipation, time with family and friends, good food, sunshine and rest. Easter is much the same – a day of anticipation packed with goodness. However, we must journey through the days of hard stuff, the times of trials and tribulation and the time of darkness. For a journey is just that – the ups and downs, the highs and lows with the celebration at the end as the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.

Last month in my article, I shared how my Theological Leadership class was challenging me to intentionally engage in a weekly activity that I may not be so comfortable doing and I passed the challenge along to you. How are your Lenten journey experiences? What are some of the activities that you are doing differently or intentionally this season? Several have shared theirs – writing in a journal, taking a daily stroll to look for God’s beauty, writing down three things that they are grateful for each night before they go to sleep, reading a morning devotional, spending intentional, no noise time with their kiddos, and eating meals with no electronics. However you choose to quiet the noise and to focus your mind, body and spirit, may this season of Lent be a time filled with renewal and rest.
