Great Lent begins the day after tomorrow! Tomorrow is Forgiveness Sunday, which is my favorite Vesper service of the year. If you’ve never been to this service, you should definitely make the effort to attend tomorrow evening, it is a very humbling service and the perfect way to begin Great Lent. That being said, I want to ask forgiveness from all of you for anything I may have said or done to offend any of you. I know I touch on some sensitive topics sometimes but know that offending anyone is never my intention. <3
Guess what else it’s time for? It’s time to sign up for the Psalter Prayer Groups again! Yay! I can hardly wait to start tucking that little green book in my bag again.
This is one of my favorite things during the 40-day fasts. It is a quiet time that I can look forward to each day. And by quiet, I don’t mean the things around me are quiet, those things rarely are, but rather the hush that comes over my soul whenever I open my Psalter and read.
The last few times, I periodically posted some various writings on why reading the Psalms is so beneficial and I’ll be doing that again this time as well. There are some really beautiful thoughts on this. God-willing they will strengthen and encourage us as we prepare to receive the Bridegroom and as we trudge the rocky roads of our Lenten journeys. So please keep an eye out for those!

I will have the groups and everyone’s assigned readings up sometime on Clean Monday! But don’t worry, if you stumble upon this post after the fast has begun, you can still sign up. It’s never too late to join in!
