This Sunday we begin our journey through the Season of Lent. For five weeks we will have the opportunity to do something different -- to break out of the easy habits and comfort zones that keep us unaware of God's Presence and Purpose in our lives.
The possibilities are endless. You might take up a daily prayer or Bible-reading practice. You might take on a volunteer activity. You might simply make a point of going to church every Sunday of Lent, without missing a single Sunday.
You might venture down to Collyer Park in Longmont on a Friday evening in Lent to worship at Common Cathedral, a faith community led by Episcopal Deacon Marc Genty, which was founded for and by homeless and formally homeless people. Services with a meal take place every Friday, 6:00 to 6:45pm.
As I said, the possibilities are endless. The main thing is to do something different -- and do it in the name of Christ Jesus. --Fr. Abshire
