Lenten Poem by Ann Weems

Lent is a time to take time to let the power of our faith story take hold of us, 
a time to let the events get up and walk around in us, 
a time to intensify our living unto Christ, 
a time to hover over the thoughts of our hearts, 
a time to place our feet in the streets of Jerusalem or to walk along the sea and listen to his Word, 
a time to touch his robe and feel the healing surge through us, 
a time to ponder and a  time to wonder…. 

Lent is a time to allow a fresh new taste of God! 
Perhaps we’re afraid to have time to think, for thoughts come unbidden. 
Perhaps we’re afraid to face our future knowing our past. 
Give us courage, O God, to hear your Word and to read our living into it. 
Give us the trust to know we’re forgiven and give us the faith to take up our lives and walk.
