BEGINNING LENT

Monday, March 11, 2019

     “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters. And God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.” (Gen 1: 1-5)

     Lent (re)-introduces us to the “basics” of our faith, like a catechetical program. So today, as those of us on the Orthodox church-calendar begin Lent, at Vespers we have this reading from the very beginning of the Bible. It takes us back to the very beginning of our “common story,” when God first created something out of nothing, and then proceeded to make sense and order out of that “something.” 

     Today let me embrace at least a bit of Lent’s “sense” and “order” in my schedule. Let me align myself to God’s Spirit in some heartfelt prayer, reading, and some tender-loving-care for my physical health as well. “Let there be light” in my life, this morning and this evening, as I re-focus on the basics of living in God’s “good” light.
