readings for lent

For the past couple of years I have been reading through this book during lent. All the readings can be found here and i highly recommend them as a guide for prayer/meditation/reflection in this season.

Today i have been thinking about the fact that "i am dust and to dust i shall return." I know that's not the whole story and the breath of God that continues by the Spirit will animate me on the other side of death....but I feel the weight of mortality today and I'm aware of the harsh wilderness that accelerates decay. Perhaps this is the right way to feel on the second day of lent. I need some honey for my bones, some air for my lungs. It was a blessing to be surrounded by the 3rd St peeps tonight and I felt like i was carried along by these companions. peace and grace to you all.

Geoff,

I know that yesterday was a very difficult day for you and Sherry. And I wish that there was something that I could say to help alleviate the pain. But I'm still glad to be here with you in the midst of it. That's the sweetest honey I know this side of heaven. Walk on.........
