#LentVoices - Leaving

We have stepped into the season of lent, planted a foot in another place. A new time in the deepest desert begins. Away from the pushing and shoving of life, Away from the noise that clamours around us, Away from the demands that compete for our attention, Away from other who would have their pound of our flesh, Away from the unreal expectations and standards we place on ourselves, Away from the boundless distractions that sap energy and dominate time. Starting to leave - Leaving to start We have stepped into the season of lent, planted a foot in another place. A new time in the deepest desert begins. Into the emptiness which exposes our innermost pain, Into the silence in which our own voice becomes the only sound we hear, Into the darkness night in which dwell both rest and fear, Into the loneliness where we can find our imperfect reality, Into the full face of the elements standing exposed and vulnerable, Into the quiet where finally the whisper can be heard. Starting to leave - Leaving to start We have stepped into the season of lent, planted a foot in another place. A new time in the deepest desert begins. A moment when possibilities begin to emerge, A moment when the detail is coming into focus, A moment when the space between people is coming alive, A moment when we begin to truly learn about ourselves, A moment when perspective is shifting and horizons pulsing, A moment when the divine is becoming ordinary.

 We have stepped into the season of lent, planted a foot in another place. A new time in the deepest desert begins. Wait, peace is coming to still your struggles, Wait, hope is coming to spark your spirit, Wait, life is coming to fill your dreams, Wait, joy is coming to make you smile, Wait, love is coming to complete you, Wait, God is coming to lead you on.
