Leaning Into Lent: Conserving Energy

As we began our Lenten journey, I cautioned that forty days is long and it gets longer the closer we get to the end of the journey. I never imagined that we would be dealing with a pandemic during the season of Lent. The president’s words were certainly daunting thinking that the two to three weeks we are haven’t even experienced will be worse than what we have been through. The lowest estimate on the number of lives that will be loss is overwhelming.

In the midst of all of this, conserve your energy. This is not a race. This will be a marathon.

Conserve your energy.

Hunker down.

Take naps.

There is so much more to come, much we can’t imagine.

Slow down.
