It’s been a long February and though Ash Wednesday was just yesterday, still there are moments when it feels like it’s been Lent forever. It’s as though something strange is happening to our sense of time this year. Days merge, one into the other, and one month can feel very much like another in this strange lockdown limbo. I’ve noticed in conversations with people recently, that there’s a general sense of tiredness and inertia – more than the usual February blues.
Our regular walks have given a pattern to the week, space to breathe and to find some sense of perspective amidst all that is happening around us. In this season of Lent, we’ll be using this blog to share some paintings of places where we have walked together, with words to help us to ponder, to wonder and maybe to question. Some paths we have walked recently and some are from when we were able to travel further away from home. Some places you may recognise, some will be new to you. We invite you to walk with us this Lent in company with the one who walks beside us;
Jesus said ;“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Matthew 11: 28
