During Lent, Jesus took 40 days to consecrate himself to his purpose. Those who look at him through a biblical lens know that in the biblical story, that purpose included death on the cross and then, resurrection after three days. These days, many people use Lent for self-reflection, personal growth and spiritual growth. But a larger purpose may be getting closer to God or the divine. Hiding under his wings (I think that's the wording?). This year, beginning on March 6th, I encourage you, no matter what your faith, to create contemplative moments of retreat for yourself during the 40 days of Lent.
Create a Contemplative Lenten Practice
Instead of just reading a great book this year, grab your journal and a cup of tea each time, so you can really dive in.
Think about what the passage means to you. Imagine it happening, and even if you don't believe it happened literally, take in its truth, anyway.
Write down any insights or questions that come to mind, offering yourself up for a deeper understanding.
