Now that the season of Lent is almost upon us, what are your plans to observe this holy time? Do you plan to give something up, do you plan to add something to your spiritual practices, do you plan to watch the moss grow, what is your plan, if you have one?
I'm not sure I really have a plan, but I have been stuffing myself with Girl Scout Cookies today. Plan to make a chocolate cheesecake later.
I am thinking about reading The Final Week: What the Gospels Really Teach About Jesus's Final Days in Jerusalem by Marcus Borg. Or maybe Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time by the same author. I'd like to spend some time with Handel's Messiah,and also with Bach's St. Matthew's Passion. I'd like to make a new string of prayer beads, since I seem to have lost my old ones. I'm sure there are other things I can do, like help in a food pantry or at a PADS shelter. I can get back to making prayer shawls, something that has taken a back seat to more immediate needs.
Looking forward to hearing from you. I always find great ideas that would never have occurred to me.
