2018 02 18: Gone Walkabout

Each and every one of us has had our own season in the wilderness, and Lent is the time which the church sets aside to honor that struggle each year. Some years you might remember an intense period in your life a few months ago, maybe this time around you’re coughing up sand and shielding your face from the scorching wind right now, wandering in your desert. Other years you might have some hard-won hope, a cherished deep-breath at an oasis in the desert, a momentary break from being a wayfaring stranger yourself.
