I love Lent. It is a season that calls us to reflect, repent, and rejoice. Our spiritual journey is like our hearts: crooked and complex. In Lent, we are called to reflect on where we are in our life with Christ and our neighbours. All this reflection leads us to repentance. (A word that is often maligned and misunderstood.) Repentance is about turning from those things that separate us from God and our neighbours. As we turn, we move to rejoicing. Having been made right, we can celebrate right relationships and healthy habits. May this Lenten season bring you to the joy of Easter.
