“Lent reminds us that Christians form a community gathered in contemplation around God’s Word–and that means we’re also gathered in meditation on the world, its goodness and grandeur, its beauty and brutality. Lent is a call to pay attention, to see creation as God does, to gather our faith not only from God’s promise (where it begins), but also from God’s presence in the low, vast murmur of human life that tugs at our hearts, heads, and hands.” (from Introduction)
Nathan Mitchell offers daily reflections for the season of Lent that focus on the unity of Word and World in our lives. Drawing upon the wisdom of scripture and such notable sources as St. Benedict, Flannery O’Connor, C.S. Lewis, Elie Wiesel, world events, and folktales, Mitchell weaves together the threads of deep spiritual awareness and the familiar colors of our lives.
