A Pause in Lent 2012 - WIP!

A Pause in Lent this year will start next Sunday or Monday (this also reminds us that Tuesday is Pancake Day - not to be forgotten!). Thanks very much for the comments you've been leaving on last Wednesday's post (click on the link in the sidebar to see it). It's clear that a loose theme with a positive, 'looking forward' nature is going to be useful for us. I'm looking through all your suggestions, in comments and emails, and will come up with something for you by Ash Wednesday, which seems appropriate! The most important thing is that this 'Pause' is designed to help bloggers in their own spiritual path. Therefore I try to keep the rules to a minimum, because how on earth would I know what's right for you? If you want to dip in and out, and not post every week, please do. If you want to tie your posts in with something else you're doing, like a Lent group, readings, giving up or taking on things... please do! See you in Lent!

It seem like we were just in Christmas, Lent seems early this year...I love that we get to go to church twice a week now. Soon it will be Easter!!

I never commented on your previous post, at least I don't think I did - mainly because life is just so hectic at the moment and in Lent my main thought is to take time out. (hmm, seem to have been at this point before) However I did think that a simple word or question as a starting point each week might be a useful tool some times.

Will try and join in as often as I can and any prompts to focus will be really helpful. Thanks.

Looking forward to your suggestions on Ash Wednesday. It does seem that the key words in the comments this year have been 'simple', 'word, and 'theme'

I really appreciate the way you facilitate this for us [sorry to use jargon word] each year.

You could put your pancake lemons in that serpent, you know!

blessings xx

The goal of every Christian is to leave Lent a stronger and more vital person of faith than when we entered.
