Possibilities for Lent: a Photo Essay

Today we prepare for Lent, as Mardi Gras and Shrove Tuesday offer us a last chance to use up all the luxuries we will forsake for the next 40 days, plus Sundays, plus Holy Week.

Will we go to a Shrove Tuesday pancake supper?  Will we bake a festive bread?

Most of us will not have time for bread baking or pancakes.  Hopefully we can carve a bit of time to think about our Lenten disciplines. 

Perhaps we will try to harness time by a practice of prayer.

Maybe we will simply meditate.  Maybe we will reflect on the way that light shifts through the window as the sun moves across the sky.

Maybe we will walk a labyrinth.

Hopefully we will return to our desks, to write a bit more often.
