The Half-Time of Lent

March 27, 2019

“Why do you look for the living among the dead?

He is not here; he has risen!

Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:

‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners,

be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ”

— Luke 24:5-7

We’re about halfway through Lent, the time to get ready for Easter.

We’re about halfway through this week, too.

Today’s Half-Time is a good day to hit the Pause button for a moment.

The way The Gospel According to St. Luke presents the events of that first Easter, there was an excellent question involved: “Why do you look for the living among the dead?”

And that started with a quite significant three-letter word, made most famous in recent years by Simon Sinek. That word is Why.

As we continue through Lent together, my hope and prayer is that we’ll take a moment, or even all the moments necessary, to address that three letter question about our actions: “Why…?”

As in, “Why am I going to…?” and “Why am I wanting to…?”

You get the idea: a three-letter self-inventory.

And after we’ve answered some of those, let’s get back to it.

Knowing Why.
