Lent is a time of preparation
Thompson Citizen, March 28, 2014 — Lent, the season we are now living, is a time to prepare for and look forward to new life. "Lent" comes from an Anglo-Saxon word meaning spring. Being in Thompson or the Northern regions, we have to start the seeds for our spring plants indoors. But start them we do and give them lots of tender loving care.
But new life is not only about plants and flowers and trees.
Our spirit and spiritual life also needs new growth and we should be as attentive to it as we are to our seedlings. It too needs watering and our tender loving care.
