The word 'Lent' derives from the Old English 'Spring' and we all know about spring cleaning – whether we do it or not!
Lent is a good time for spiritual spring cleaning too.
Between now and Easter, when we celebrate the risen Lord, take time to look around your home and consider its furnishings and fittings and, in doing so, reflect on the furnishing and fittings of our faith. Let us start at the front door which can be a metaphorical doorway into the period of Lent.
Lord Jesus, you stand at the threshold of every heart and seek the welcome of an open door. May we invite and welcome you as a permanent guest into our lives.
