The Wilderness Journey of Lent

Have you ever felt like you were out in the wilderness; lost, surrounded by fear and doubt and anguish? When you find yourself there, you know that sense of challenge. Our season of Lent begins with Jesus in the wilderness. He’s been there ,too.

He knows what it is like to have that sense of darkness and despair that sometimes becomes our companion on the way of faith. At the end of Lent we will celebrate but  for now we must live through the times of doubt and fear. Now is a time for reflecting on what life brings, both joy and sorrow. We will live out our faith in the real world. Remember that you are not alone and may you continue to grow in faith.
