We are about half-way through the reflective season of Lent. Some of us have added a spiritual discipline this season, in order to remind ourselves to think more deeply about our human nature and our relationship with the Holy. Some of us have not–or not yet. Wherever you are in your spiritual practice this season, I invite you to take a break, take a breath, or stop for a moment on this coming Sunday.
Our church calls the fourth Sunday in Lent “Rose Sunday,” to signal that, in the midst of a penitential season, we can remember that the joy of Easter is coming soon and that, in fact, it never truly goes away. Some church-goers will wear pink or rose on March 19 to mark this lighter moment in an otherwise solemn season. Do so if you like, and remember that, even as you may be ruminating on some of your short-comings in these forty days, with or without a spiritual discipline, you are God’s beloved, made in God’s image, and very, very good. --Rev. Libby
