A life-changing speaker, Steve Maraboli, once wrote, Lent is when “you’re not on a journey to God; you are on a journey WITH God.” Let us during our Lenten journey aim to reflect on our present lifestyle, and consider how we can be more prayerful, more forgiving, more caring of others, and how we can be more aware of God’s presence even in those COVID fearing days.
You all have received the Chimes and you are well informed; however, I will give a few highlights:
