Lent looks different for me from year to year, but lately I’ve been experiencing it as an invitation to notice just one thing at a time. If I choose to give up something, it makes room in my mind to be present more fully. If I lean into getting rid of distractions and the little luxuries that consume so much of my time, I have space to notice. I have space to respond.
This message is an excerpt from “Just notice: Walking into Lent with Martha” by Cara Strickland in the March 2017 issue of Gather magazine.
