For me one of the important subtexts of Lent is that it is a time of disturbance. I think of the season as 'the disturbing time'. As we continue through Lent morning bell is going to work with some of the scriptures of disturbance that Jesus would have known from the Tanakh [the Jewish scriptures]. We can imagine him returning to these scriptures during his wilderness trial, perhaps finding there some reflection of his experience. So may we disturbed and encouraged. The pic is of the tidal road near our home, looking very bare at this time of the year.
