Preparing for Lent
Tomorrow will be Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent for 2011. I will like this opportunity to quieten and try to center myself. It has been a hectic few weeks and I believe I should not be rushing into Lent. Lent is a time of reflection, repentance and acceptance. For Jesus, it was a time of quietness before the storm. To some observers, it is a period that ends with a tragic murder. I know that it is more than this. It reminds us of a pivotal moment in creation. One that spells freedom and liberty to all who are in bondage. It is a time when chains are cast off and we regain our dignity as human beings, created in the image of God.
