Introduction from Father Lance:Lent 2016 Dear Friends in Christ:Each year I am so delighted to have a new edition of our Lenten Book of Meditations. It is my hope and prayer that you will find comfort, insight, joy and much food for thought within these pages.Of late, our Epistle readings for Sundays have been from Paul’s letter to the Corinthians. Paul writes of the Body of Christ, and how each of us is a vital and important member of the Body. This booklet is a wonderful example of what it means to be part of the greater Body. Each of these meditations are from you, members of the Body here at Good Shepherd. Each and every contribution is as important and meaningful as all the rest. All together we catch a glimpse of the greater glory of being in a community. I want to thank everyone who took the time and care to help make these reflections possible.
I have discovered through the years that folks use this booklet in various ways. Some read each offering day by day. Others read it in its entirety on the first day and then go back to the pages for reflections. Of course, all flip ahead to Jack’s page for wisdom and usually a great deal of humor. However you choose to read this year, may this be a blessing to you.
What a gift to learn, discover, grow, and ponder the spiritual life from each other. God speaks to our hearts in the richness of His love and those who have shared their insights and wisdom lights the path for us all.
As always, I want to thank Patti Curtin for her gift of time and care to make this possible. It is a huge endeavor to organize, edit, and create this work, what a gift of love from her to us all. I am deeply appreciative and grateful for her presence and ministry in our midst.
May your Lent be a time of renewal, discovery, growth, and love.
