Welcome to St Annes and St Peters

Lent is often an unsettling period for me. It seems to be a time when all that I thought I knew is thrown up into the air and re-examined as it falls back to earth; a time of trying to get back to the basics of my faith and into a deeper relationship with God in Christ.

 

 Every Lent I pick up a new book to diligently work through, often one involving something a little different - containing poetry or meditations on scripture.

This year I am reading Paula Gooder's book, 'Let me go there'. It is a challenge, from the very begining, to my own discipleship. Paula reminds us that a disciple was not just a 'follower' of a Rabbi but principally 'a learner'.

So where and how do we learn about Christ?

 How do we learn from Christ?

Hanging out with Him is so much more difficult for us than for those first disciples! However, an answer lies in recognising Him, His very presence, in our brothers and sisters in Christ. This is one way to learn, this is a way to grow as disciples, by being together and learning to do life in godly ways together.

So as your consider how your are being called by God to observe Lent, ask him who you might spend a little extra time with, who you might offer a helping hand to; I think it might be a blessing to you both.

Prayers and blessings

Wendy
