Lent 2011 – Living as Light
Lent invites us to enter into the continuing story of God’s presence in the world. We are challenged to live as light (Ephesians 5:8). Fasting is a traditional Lenten discipline, flowing out of self-examination and repentance. Isaiah 58 reminds us that our ‘fasting’ can also be an act of radical re-engagement with the marginalised and oppressed.
