Lent, The Journey To The Cross, oil on linen, 36"by 48"
LENT: JOURNEY TO THE CROSS
     This time of fasting, prayer and almsgiving in preparation for Easter is a call to repentance and healing in body, soul and spirit through deeper conversion and transformation. This might mean a lifelong journey toward wholeness and integration through reconciliation and healing of memories, wounds of the heart, addictions, strongholds, and freedom from fear and burdens never meant to be carried and any other idol or attachment that prevents a full life.
      The season of Lent is 40 days and the color is reddish-purple, the color of penance. The landscape, a hilly road and a desolate place of struggle with nits and dragons, is also a place for meeting the Beloved. Here we are accompanied by the One Who Helps us detach from the dark nights of our smaller stories, sometimes through extraordinary means and little glimpses, to free us to be or become who we already are in Him and remember toward heaven.
