Lent is only one season, but our self-reflection and growth shouldn’t just happen for 40 days once a year. Like good soup stock, we should always be simmering, allowing new insights to infuse us with perspective.
When we gather as a body, during Lent or any season of the church year, we, too, gather like soup’s ingredients, to nourish each other. May we warm, fill, stretch and bring mindfulness to ourselves and those around us.
