Question for Reflection:
In some traditions, Christians are urged to "give up something for Lent." Others decide to "take on" something for Lent - a new spritiual practice, a special form of service to others, or a goal of reading Scripture daily. The readings this evening from Isaiah and Matthew particularly invite us to "take on" something - justice, service to others prayer, fasting, etc.
What might you take on for Lent as a way of deepening your faithfulness before God?
