Lenten Reflection #1: Joel 2:12

Listen here: https://anchor.fm/simplediakonia/episodes/Lenten-Reflection-1-Joel-212-eqhjf0

“Return to me with your whole heart, with fasting, and weeping, and mourning” (Joel 2:12).


Lent is a four-legged stool of spirituality:

• The season for repairing our relationship with our Creator through prayer

• An opportunity to grow in perseverance and patience by embracing fasting

• A moment to share with profound gratitude from our well of blessings

• A chance to be born anew in the waters of consolation and conversion

Lent is the spiritual return home of the prodigal child to the warm-forgiving embrace of merciful love.

Today’s Intention:

O Lord, thanks for the gift of Lent, a time of spiritual renewal. We humbly pray for joy, courage, and strength during the journey ahead.

Peace and Goodness
