I am going to try to do a Lenten discipline of reading scripture and offering a creative response. The creative response will likely be a short form poem, but who knows! I may get really wild.You are welcome to join the journey. This is not a challenge, but it is a resource to prompt your own journey. If you would like me to list your blog here, I am happy to do so.

Today is Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras Day! Tomorrow is the beginning of many individual’s Lenten Journey. Check out Terri’s thought provoking idea for a meaningful and different approach to Lent this year!
