Lent: a 40 Day Invitation

Lent: a 40- Day Invitation

Leave behind your brokenness
Enter the simple-plain wilderness
Be marked with palm-ashes
Sing hymns in soft tones of longing
Lean hungry hearts into prayer
Search out the memory of baptism
Hear the ancient cry “Repent,
Prepare the way of the Lord.”
Speak the language of confession
Let the shadow of the cross fall on you
Receive the healing of forgiveness
Take His bread broken for you
Drink His wine poured out for you
Let His love overtake your love
That you may become…
God’s Holy Invitation to Others.

-Alice Ellis, February 2008
