Lenten Reflections - Week 1
Lenten Reflections - Week 1

(Click on the heading for the full text)
As a river flows, the water seeks the path of least resistance -
but, inevitably, obstacles arise, and the water must re-negotiate its path.
As we live our lives, and seek to serve faithfully,
obstacles will arise. But we can always find new paths and make an impact -
just think about the Colorado River and Grand Canyon…!

February 22 Genesis 9:8-17 Mark 1:9-15
For 40 days, Satan tempts Jesus in the wilderness. The scriptures tell us that Jesus was there with the wild animals and that the angels waited on him. And, God made a covenant with Noah and ‘every living creature.’ The image of animals with Noah and Jesus sends a clear message about our connection to all God’s creation. We do not journey alone through Lent.

This week, reflect on moments when you have been in ‘the wilderness’ of life – a physical, emotional, or spiritual wilderness. Think about who and what was with you at that time. Google ‘Native American Animal guides’ and read about the symbolism of different animals, and what it might mean if you feel a particular affinity with one. Let us carry these moments of Connection with us as we begin our Lenten journey together.
