Love and Lent

My beloved spoke and said unto me, ‘Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.- Song of Solomon 2:10-11 (21st Century King James Version)

Welcome to the start of the 2018 Lenten Season (Ash Wednesday), where we begin 40 days of introspection, reflection, and a chance to grow closer to the Divine. Today is also Valentine’s Day-a day dedicated to love and romance.

It’s interesting that both of these occasions fall on the same day. For those of you who planned to give up chocolate, red meat, alcohol, and sex for Lent; I wonder how you’ll navigate the day. However let me point to a more interesting point.

Today I took a page from Song of Solomon for the text. Although I believe this book deals with the joys of human (unmarried at that) sexuality, I’m going to take it on a different track. God-our beloved-is calling us as away with Her this Lenten Season; that the “winter” of all the stupid shit is over. God calls us to intimacy with Her this Season; and why not start today on Valentine’s Day?

Welcome to Lenten. May you be blessed with the joys of spiritual intimacy with God.


About dangerouschristian

My name is Victor Reynolds. I'm a Christian who desires a more mystical approach to my spiritual life. I'm also a photographer as well who loves to create. I call myself "dangerous" because anyone-especially a Christian-who dares to be beyond the "norm" and allows to let the Christ live in them is dangerous.
