Since it is Saturday, this here post is coming a little later in the day. . . This morning I “rested-in.”
Keeping with my intention for this blog, I will continue to include invitations to enter into Lent every day. Today I offer a list created by a self-proclaimed “Sarcastic Lutheran” whose invitation to Lent has a listing of 40 ways to pay attention to a need, interact with another, reach out-reach in to God. She has style and humor and is a contemporary Christian in a post-modern world. Over the years I have found Lutherans to be great companions in ministry and humor. Enjoy.
*Sabbath is traditionally the day at the end of the week, where rest is called for after much as been done. Students don’t always get a full, or fully restful “sabbath” as is it would seem, there always work to be done, there are always deadlines to make and sometimes work, grocery shopping and other necessary things fill up the what
free time there is on days when classes are
not scheduled — some even have classes and rehearsals on Saturdays!
During this Lent, let Saturdays be a reminder to you that you need and deserve rest.
Take time for sabbath by doing something that you love (not just sleep), that feeds and refreshes you, for one day each week, and allow yourself to just be, to let your soul catch up with you…
Another option for Sabbath in Lent…
Several Quiet days will be offered on Saturdays during Lent.
See if you can set aside a day to be quiet, and rest in prayer and community through these opportunities…
