Reorienting Our Rule of Lent

How might we name the need for and create a different set of practices, as well as theological and communal pathways according to our uniquenesses? On this second Sunday of Lent, Christopher Mack interrogates a one-size fits all spirituality and invites us to “begin again, again” this season. [Romans 4:13-15, 18-22]


What might respecting how the Divine Creator has made you look like on this lenten journey?

How might you incorporate learning from someone else’s perspective into your lenten experience?

Where might you need healing from a one-sized fits all approach to the spiritual journey?
