End of the Third Week of Lent.

by Christine Sine

This coming Sunday is the 4th Sunday of Lent.  We are now more than half way through this season and it seems like a good time to pause and reflect on what we have learned to this point.  I have particularly enjoyed hosting this series because it has encouraged me to spend time each morning reflecting on Lent and the meaning of this season.  All the reflections have been so deep and meaningful that I probably should not mention favourites.  However, for me personally the reflections that contrast light and darkness have been particularly profound as I struggle to understand the contrast between our longing for good and our daily confrontation with suffering.
