ReconciliationThis year for us Lent is a season of giving in. We seek reconciliation in its most expansive meaning.

Lent means forgiveness and healing, restoration and wholeness, unity and justice, peace and making things right. This is the prayerful work of these days.  It involves giving up pride and despair and giving in to God’s healing of our world.  We are called to break down the barriers we set between ourselves and God, and to be reconciled (2 Corinthians 5:20-6:10).  We join the prodigal child who turns away, but finally returns home, reconciled and embraced by the compassionate parent (Luke 15:1-32).  The words of the prophet call us to share our bread and home with those who are poor (Isaiah 5:81-12) – making just our relationships.  The words of Jesus call us to repent and to bear fruit – make good out of our lives with others (Luke 13:1-9).
