Get Outside Your Comfort Zone This Lent

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Sunday, February 18, 2018

The desert’s a great place to encounter the Holy, as a long tradition of desert fathers and mothers attests. But the desert’s a traditional place to make intimate acquaintance with your demons as well — which is another reason Jesus, and generations of his followers, made friends with cacti. It’s also why we symbolically enter the Lenten desert each year, fasting, praying, and giving alms. We allow the normal lifestyle padding to wear a little thinner and feel our vulnerable spots with more clarity. Make a commitment this Lent to explore your limits. Bring an extra supply of humility!
