Season of Change
The season of Lent challenges us to consciously enter into a process of changing, to let go of selfish attitudes . . . and to grow closer to God!
All of life is change and transition. Yet, because change entails an ending and a loss even in the most joyful events, many people find themselves uncomfortable with it.
When change confronts us, these meditations can help. Robertson focuses on events that tie our lives together and often acts as barriers between us and our growth. She looks at issues such as moving, clinging to old practices, getting cold feet, and uneasiness. She also helps us take time out to check our progress and assess where we are headed.
Blending real-life vignettes with biblical quotations, Patricia M. Robertson provides brief reflections that focus on change and transition–the steppingstones to personal spiritual growth. These meditations can help you fully immerse yourself in the Lenten spirit. During the rest of the year, the insights and attitudes developed during the Lenten season can provide encouragement and comfort when you are experiencing conflicting emotions that accompany change.
Simple, yet moving, these meditations can help us follow Jesus more completely through and beyond the season of Lent.
