My dear friend Dawn wrote this as she kicked off to her Lenten journey. I hope it sparks something in you.
“If you think about the huge history and the future of planet Earth as a long line and randomly pick a point on that timeline, the overwhelming likelihood is that you will not be alive at that point. We do not live in the time of the dinosaurs; we will not live in the 23rd or 24th century like the heroes of Star Trek. We live now. For good or ill, this is our time. We think about how extraordinary it is that we have our lives, made human and in the image of God, and about what God wants us to do with the time we have. Every human life is exceptionally precious, and is filled with value, meaning and purpose. And somewhere in that timeline there is a brief spark that makes everything light up. That spark is you.”
