Friends, Ash Wednesday is here, and I invite you to join me in the Living the Word Lent Reading Plan. The free PDF of the reading plan was provided by Ave Maria Press. Please join the Joyful Momentum Facebook group for short video reflections about the readings.
I’m hosting a Zoom gathering on Sunday nights at 8pm Eastern Time for women who would like to walk through Lent together. I’m sharing that invitation in the Joyful Momentum Facebook Group. You don’t have to do this reading plan to join the Zoom discussion! While I’ll likely talk about the Bible readings in the Zoom groups, the purpose of the group is to invite people together in fellowship and friendship, and to share the ways that God is moving in our lives.
Why am I reading the Bible this Lent? Well, I keep a daily habit of reading Scripture, and I like the way the Living the Word Lent plan bridge’s the Old and New Testaments to show us, as St. Augustine said, “the New Testament is the hidden of the Old, and the Old is manifest in the New.” I’m making space and inviting God to sit with me, to talk with me through His Word. Come along!
