Archive for the “Lent” Category

All day people have been coming and going from the Roman Catholic church at the bottom of our street.

They come with clean faces.  They leave marked with ash.

It seems to me a shame that the ‘reformed’ church has never quite embraced Lent.  There is something very rich about discipline and something very deep about the wilderness.

And there something very powerful about leaving church bearing a mark.  An outward sign of an encounter with God.
