Lent 2013 – day 29

Bridge to the future?

Bridge to the future?

What to DO in Lent 2013?

Is this a season to go deeper and to reflect on updating one’s theology?

Where is the journey taking us?

Last week the Roman Catholic denomination of Christianity elected a new Pope – who took the name of Francis 1st.

Pope Francis is reported to have taken that name because of his admiration for Francis of Assisi, and that man’s priorities for the poor. Let’s not forget that Francis of Assisi also advocated for a healthy relationship with nature.

This is a positive sign.

Can our theologies be re-formed so that they can become a bridge to the future – one where priority is given to the poor and marginalized among us, and our relationship within creation?

Are we not “keepers of one another”?
