Lenten Partnership

Trying to experience Lent by yourself - often a challenge - often difficult - often a failure.  From those who know - journeying with a partner - much easier - more successful.  Most who have done Lent well - have done it with at least one other person - some - in sizable groups.  It is always more affirming - more helpful - more rewarding - when sharing faith with others.  Many will try alone - private prayers - personal reading - quiet meditation - missed intentions - forgotten for days - done before started.  Partners - groups - community - challenge - encourage - affirm - the value of doing Lent well.  Prayer groups - Bible studies - group devotionals - all very successful.  The hardest part - starting - the easiest part - quitting.

Jesus said that all were called - not all responded - many drifted by the wayside.  Walking with Jesus - a challenge - trying to keep pace - easy.  Jesus does not run - Jesus does not sprint - Jesus walks - at a pace just for you.  Your decision - He is there - smiling - waiting - for you.
