Is it possible for forty days to transform your world.
Lent, the Christian tradition of fasting, prayer and good works starts Ash Wednesday March 6 and ends Holy Thursday April 18.
For me it means.
Goodbye to chocolate chip cookies.
Goodbye to chocolate chip, banana muffins
Goodbye to chocolate mint ice cream.
Goodbye to swearing at drivers.
Hello to increased prayer life and meditation.
Hello to being a kinder, more understanding person.
At this time of year I often reflect on forgiveness and reconciliation.
Society needs to rediscover the art of forgiveness, penance and reconciliation. Social media is deeply into shaming politicians, celebrities and others on perceived past misdeeds.
If a person has offended someone’s sensibilities, should they suffer for the rest of their lives or be forgiven after a suitable time and allowed to move forward with their lives.
Have we become such an unforgiving society.
Can forty days transform your world.
Why not give it a try.
