LENT OFFERS US … a long time to examine where we have been and where we want to go in our spiritual lives. We don’t have to make any snap decisions. We are free to think about options in the privacy of our own relationships to God, and to choose how we’ll move forward. Lent affords a little time to calm down, breathe deeply, and then make some considered choices.

How is Lent affording you time to think about your relationship with God? Share your thoughts.
…as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”) — in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.
Romans 4:17, NRSV
