I decided to be more intentional about Lent this year. In a sense, to “practice what I preach.” Each year I tell my congregation this is a time to work on one’s spiritual life or consider one’s relationship with God.
So, that is exactly what I am attempting to do this season. I am reading a book that’s been on my shelf forever, one I always “intended” to look at. It’s called Holy Adventure by Bruce Epperly. I’m taking time out– or trying to– each day to think about my relationship with God and ask questions prayerfully about where I’m headed and what I’m called to do.
And I’ve been keeping a list of words that challenge me, words that seem to speak to what’s happening in my heart and soul and brain right now. Words. I love words. These are all verbs, or intended to be understood in their active sense. I offer them to you all as a challenge for prayer or contemplation or journaling. There are 40 of them, one for each of the days of this season.
