“In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God”

“In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord;
make straight in the desert a highway for our God”

“At the onset of Jesus’ ministry, John announced his coming in fulfilment of Isaiah 40, as our caption puts it. This is the cry of Lent: Prepare the way of the Lord! Make room for him in your thoughts and activities and affections.

“An appropriate response to this announcement is to take stock of our lives, to reconsider how we’re living in light of God’s presence and power made available to us in Jesus. And that’s what Lent is for: to reflect on our lives as they are, and as they could be.”

That is how one blog put it in 2013: click the Journey to the Cross link to see the rest.

And the cry of Lent is the same in 2014. To help our preparations, a number of study groups will be meeting, and there are other opportunities for prayer and action, both alone and in company, that are too long to include here, but do download the list at this link.
