This Lent

This Lent
I’ll create a space for stillness

This Lent
Prayer becomes conversation

This Lent
When at table I’ll not overfill

This Lent
I’ll repent and forgive

This Lent
Small acts of kindness matter

This Lent
I’ll walk through every Gospel story

This Lent
I’ll come to know Jesus better because

This Lent
I’ll let Jesus enter
