February 2012These Lenten reflections have been created by forty men andwomen from the FOCUS Community. Traditionally this period is atime for spiritual preparation through repentance and growth in faithfor Easter. It is the time of the church year when the passion anddeath of the Savior come into focus. It begins with a special day orrepentance, Ash Wednesday, and ends in the depth of tragedy,sorrow and grief of Good Friday and Holy Saturday.The season of Lent beckons us to see what we are clinging to. Theimagery of this season, therefore, is frequently stark. These daysdraw us into a wilderness in which we can more readily see what wehave shaped our daily lives around: habits, practices, possessions,commitments, conflicts, relationships
all the stuff that we giveourselves to in a way that sometimes becomes more instinctual thanintentional. Much as Jesus went into the desert to pray and fast forforty days, Lent offers us a landscape that calls us to look at our livesfrom a different perspective, to perceive what is essential and whatis extraneous.We are pleased to have joyful permission from clergy and artist Rev. Jan Richardson to use her charcoal prints for each Sunday from
The Lenten Series
