First Sunday of Lent

March 9, 2014

EXPERIENCE THAT LEADS TO KNOWLEDGE

Last week I spoke of the experience of God.  That our faith is felt before it is understood.  That it is a longing before it is a reason.  Knowledge is incomplete without an experience.  After all, you can study love and human relations all you want, but until you fall in love, you just never really quite get it.

As we begin Lent, we are challenged to experience what we believe we know, so that we many know even more.  We are challenged to feel, we are challenged to long.

So you must ask yourself, what is different for you this Lent?  Which is not the same question as what you are giving up, because sometimes we need to do more rather than less.
