In our continuing Lenten series, today we invite you to consider fasting from judging others, and feasting on seeing the Christ in them. This requires us to overlook the superficial details of what seems to separate us one from another, and to celebrate what we have in common in the midst of diversity. How to do this? We suggest that getting to know someone, being present with them, is the most direct way. Can there be any greater joy than recognizing Christ in another, and is not this what we promise to do in our baptismal covenant? Join the conversation, make comments, share this with others, and above all, have a most Blessed Lent. [Note about the thumbnail graphic: consider the diverse colors, shapes and designs of flowers, each one unique even in the same species…yet together they form a marvelous celebration of a common life…much as we can experience when we see the Christ in everyone.]
