Season of Lent

Lent – the highroad or the low road, the familiar fasts or trying something different. Whatever you choose, take the opposite of what you’re used to.  Consider, how satisfied are you with your relationship with God?  The psalmist quoted below isn’t – dry and thirsty, fainting and weary. Lent is the time for a challenge, for testing your ability to look honestly at yourself.

O God, you are my God, I seek you, my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.   Psalm 63:1

Members in Sudan are very active in their communities despite Christians being 1% of the population. Prayer is essential to all they do such as prison ministry and peace and reconciliation programmes.
