Lent is a period of deepening faith as we journey towards Holy week and ultimately to the cross and resurrection. The theme for this Lent at Brougham Place is “Encountering God”. This will be picked up and encouraged through the myriad ways that we encounter God – through music, art, poetry, prayer, song, community, scripture, sacrament, nature, meditation, mystery, friendships, silence, living ….
Through reflection and recalling moments of faith formation in our lives, we name them, mark them and they become important for sustaining faith. When we ask questions of God’s presence and absence we offer opportunity for encountering God. May this be a season of encounter – for the first time, for the next time, for all time. May God give us strength, hope and joy for the journey ahead.
