The grace of forty days

Time to make the desert journey
and renew our way to life.

Time for testing and for changing.
Time to trust the word of God.

Time to recognise holy presence
and share Cyrene's work.

Time for forgiveness and for healing
and to repent our broken lives.

Time to build God's dwelling with us
and proclaim full life for all.

Time to watch and wait with Jesus
and to prepare the upper room. 

Time to turn our lives again to God
and to transform our world with love.
