even though it’s been cold and grey here the last few days, the year is turning. there are a few patches of crocus around the neighborhood, and the daffodil greens are beginning to emerge. next week we will celebrate Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. this is a wonderful season to think about clearing clutter–from our schedules, from our bookshelves + closets, from our hearts–and making room for the new things just waiting to be born. here is our simple four-fold plan for lent, a compass to help order our days aright.
north :: we will be following the Jesus Tree readings and ornaments again this year.
south :: we will be fasting from meat on Fridays
east :: we will be lighting a candle and exploring the Examen together
west :: we will take to the hills and look for the touches of green that are popping up.
