Hello, all! I’m filling in on today’s Friday Five, which has reminded me that a lot of people are practicing, practicing, practicing — and then writing about their Lenten practices.
In The Edge is Here, Elaine is writing about words, words, words for Lent. Her exploration of the word “possess” asks us: What do you possess, for good or for ill?
Tony writes in Heart on the Left about what he is not giving up for Lent – his United Methodist tradition. As you might imagine, Tevye features in his post.
Jan of a church for starving artists participated in a conversation at NEXT Church on lament as a spiritual practice, and urges us to lament and recognize the travesty of racism in our nation.
In Swimmer in the Fount, Pat is rebooting her spiritual practice, trying to take a detour from scriptural exegesis and re-focusing on meditative reading of scripture.
Liberation Theology Lutheran Kristin writes about leading a Lenten journaling group.
And, finally, Annemarie writes in Messy Jesus Business about painting Mary as she actually would have actually looked. There’s a Lenten practice for those of us seldom required to consider alternatives beyond ourselves: Envision the people who populate our Bibles and then, if they look suspiciously white and blue-eyed, try again
