a listening Lent

For the third year in a row, Arkon and I have created a Lenten Companion for Christ Episcopal Church. It's a downloadable devotional booklet with an entry for each of the 40 days leading up to Easter. Every page features a quote or scripture passage along with a little prompt for additional contemplation. As she always graciously does, the Rev. Marty Hedgpeth wrote a beautiful prayer for the last page. Listening can be a sacred act. That's what I learned from compiling the content. It made me want to become a holy listener, someone who hears beyond words and sounds, deep into the heart of things.

Thanks Julie for this Devotional book. I know it will help keep me focus every day during this most Holy Season.
