WAITING THROUGH LENT
 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than those whowatch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.
(Psalm 130:5-6)
 Lent is an uneasy time, a time of yearning and wait-ing -- yearning to walk in the dawn of the“lengthening days” from which the season takes itsname; and waiting to be hope-struck once more at thesight of that discarded grave cloth. The Christians of the Iona Community in Ireland capture the essence of the season in their prayer:
O God, so much of faith is waiting – like a pregnant woman waiting in hope,like a people under siege,holding out till relief comes,like the soul lost in the darkness;unable to see even a glimmer of light  yet stumbling through the night because somewhereout ahead, day will surely break. Lord, be with us in our waiting. In Christ’s name we pray, Amen.
As the prayer implies, our waiting is preparation.These days are (literally) pregnant with possibility.At FHPC we’re fashioning experiences to lend shapeand substance to this holy time. Come, and wait withus!
