Lent is traditionally a special time of the church year in which we are encouraged to do an in-depth evaluation of where we are going with our lives, especially in terms of our Christian discipleship. Time is set aside for contemplation of our mortality and for repentance of our sins, but also for an assessment of our potential as spiritual beings, made in the image and likeness of God. We examine where we are falling behind in our spiritual growth and make fresh resolves to carry on in our Christian calling with renewed vigor and enthusiasm. The mood is somber, yet full of promise. It is a journey from ashes to Easter. There is no better time than the present to consider that journey, and how we are making it. NOW is the acceptable time to challenge our apathy, evaluate our present life-style, and reorganize our priorities.
