January melts into February which slides into March and another year speeds by as we wonder where the times goes. Where does time actually ‘go’? I suppose is goes as we go . . . quickly or slowly, with great meaning or barely noticed, with moments of great joy and dreadful sorrows interspersed throughout.
In the church calendar, we will go from ‘ordinary time’ to the season of Lent in the middle of this month, from a time of our usual considerations to a time of intentional slow down to ponder our earthly selves through the inexorable march of Jesus towards the cross that is Good Friday, allowing again the resurrection of Easter Sunday to take us by surprise.
I wonder what Good Friday mysteries will be revealed to us this time? What Easter surprises will find us . . . this time?
May it all be well with you and yours this Lenten season.
In God’s peace,
