I didn’t get to the Ash Wednesday service last week, delayed trains and all. but a chance remark in the sermon that day is being felt by some who were there.
Wht was said is this:
Lent is about reconciliation.
Reconciling ourselves to ourselves.
Reconciling ourselves to others
Reconciling ourselves to God.
With all the talk about self-denial that goes on it is easy to miss this. Myself I find the last two fairly easy compared to the task of reconciling me to myself. I am too much of a perfectionist and too imperfect to be comfortabe in my own skin. This is something for me to think about.
