canstockphoto16135611We often refer to Lent as a journey. Today I’m interested in what our bloggers are saying about some of the twists and turns, the stops and detours, along that journey.

Katherine Doyle, writing at Just Katherine, tells of a powerful Good Samaritan experience by a member of her family.

Joanna, writing at Spacious Faith, reflects on privilege and shares plans that some of her friends have made for detours and emergencies.

Laura describes her journey in The Viau From Here. It involves walking and has an eye to the long term.

Becky Ramsey in her blog Becky Ramsey, encourages an attitude of wonder, without the need to explain everything we find along the way.

Bonnie takes time out for a virtual snowball fight, and invites you into the fray, at Bonnie’s Books.

The Shack, a book that fascinated me when it was published, is soon to be released as a movie. Christy Thomas, blogging at The Thoughtful Pastor, offers some thoughts about themes in both the movie and the book.

Take a few minutes to invite some of our bloggers to accompany you on your Lenten journey.


Barbara Bruneau is a recently retired Lutheran pastor living in southeastern Minnesota. She is a knitter, a weaver, and a very occasional blogger at An Explosion of Texture and Color.
