Lent - A Season of Vulnerability

The Season of Lent is an uncomfortable season for many of us.

It is a season that is often marked by stillness, listening, honesty, openness, and letting go.
In our noisy world we do not like such words.
In our busy lives we do not like such propositions.
In our culture of pretense we do not like the call on our lives to be genuine and honest with who we are.

Lent is a season of acknowledging our frailty and brokenness. Lent is a season of ultimate vulnerability.

Take the next twenty minutes to watch this video by Dr. Brene Brown. I promise that it will be more than worth it.

Vulnerability is a powerful part of what it means to be human, to be connected to one another.
This Lent, consider what it might mean for you to be more vulnerable.
Consider what Dr. Brown says gets in the way of our ability to connect.
Consider letting go of who you think you should be in favor of who you really are.

Lent is a season of vulnerability.
