Throughout Lent, we will be exploring the meaning of each of these by diving deeply into them each week. But you don’t need prior knowledge or reading. Nor are you expected to attend each week. Just come when you can and just as you are. It’s a time for being really present in the fullness of grace.

Every year at this time, we find our way through Lent into Palm Sunday and Holy Week. And like the first disciples, we too easily miss the main point, or forget what we have learned about how to truly see and be fed.
Humans didn’t always think in linear terms — point A has to somehow pass through B before you can get to point C. We didn’t always think in terms of Cause and Effect: don’t put the cart before the horse or else you’ll go nowhere.
