Lenten count: two.

Lenten count: two. Suggested scripture – Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12. Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up the other; but woe to one who is alone and falls and does not have another to help. Again, if two lie together, they keep warm; but how can one keep warm alone? And though one might prevail against another, two will withstand one. A threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Lenten number: one.

Lenten number (counting now that ABCs are completed): one. I’m using the word ‘single’. Yes, this sacred text is tough to honor in these times, but it also reminds us that we are beloved and love holds us through everything. Scripture: Matthew 6: 25-27. – “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?
