The Second Sunday in Lent: Your Own Journey
March 4, 2012, 7:46 am
Filed under: Lent

Have a sense of compassion for your own journey, for your own leaving and returning; a sense of, ‘yes, yes, I’m loved when I take a risk. I’m loved even when I make a mistake because somehow, it’s an expression of my desire to claim myself. I did it in a wrong way, but I didn’t have any other way to do it at that moment’….Our God awaits us with compassion and tenderness.

 Henri J. M. Nouwen (The Netherlands/1932-1996)

Every day during Lent, a brief thought, meditation, prayer, or picture will be posted here. You’re invited to use this as a jumping off point for your own spiritual practices during this season of preparation for Easter. If you would like to share a response, please comment below!
