As we travel the 40 days of Lent, we do so while keeping our gaze focused on the great light that is Christ’s resurrection at Easter. The season of Lent offers us a perfect time for reflection—on both our everyday and faith lives.
A great truth was taught to me long ago: We are all God’s children. If I discriminate or hate someone—for reasons of race, gender, capabilities, or lack thereof—it is not that person who is broken. It is me.
While any one person’s impact may seem small, each of us can do what is ours to do. Both as a Christian and as a world citizen, I want to do something more, and I think the Lenten season may be a way to move toward the future I want to help create.
