[If you subscribe to this blog via email, my apologies for the wonky post you received on Saturday. This is what happens when I go rogue and try to “fix” something on my blog without contacting my favorite tech person first! I learned my lesson, LW saved the day, and we are back to normalcy today.]
It surprises me every year, especially the years it comes early, but it seems the season of Lent is upon us once again. This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, the first day of six weeks of somber contemplation and reflection as we walk toward Easter Sunday.
For the past several years I have collaborated with my home church, Southwood Lutheran, here in Lincoln, Nebraska, to create a daily devotional for the six weeks of Lent. This year, as I have the last couple of years, I am delighted to offer this devotional to you as well, as a small way to say thank you for your encouragement and the gift of your presence here throughout the year. My husband Brad, my friend Evi Wusk and I all collaborated on the writing of this year’s devotional.
The theme of the devotional this year is the Spiritual Landscape of Lent. Our physical landscape, with its mountains, valleys and deserts, often mirrors our spiritual landscape, and this devotional brings some of those commonalities to light.
Let’s journey together through Lent this year and discover the gifts God offers us every step of the way.
