IMG_0576What to do for Lent, 2013.

Theologian Bruce Sanguin writes about LENT*:

“We are often asked what we intend to “give up” for Lent. While this ritual can be trivialized, at its core it is a powerful spiritual practice. When we release our attachment to all that we believe is essential to our survival, we may discover that, in truth, they are addictions that are holding us captive, preventing our spiritual evolution, and stifling our capacity to proclaim and enact God’s kin(g)dom. …..

“The good news is that, as evolutionary creatures, we have the benefit of 13.7 billion years of resilience and the capacity to adapt to changing life conditions. … An ability to come through what the writer of Revelation calls “the great ordeal” is built into the fabric of our evolutionary soul.”

“Behold, the former things have come to pass,

and new things I now declare;”

Isaiah 42:9

* If Darwin Prayed by Bruce Sanguin, page 43, 44
