At dawn, look to the East – {Lent}

"Look to my coming at first light on the fifth day. At dawn, look to the East." Helm's Deep. Trapped. A dwindling, weakening army. Looking out across a formidable enemy. Staring at defeat, imminent death. And then the sun begins to rise. And the words of Gandalf echo in their minds "look to my coming at first light on… Continue reading At dawn, look to the East – {Lent}

The Other Side – {Lent}

I'm heading overseas shortly. Not for long, but an International flight will be involved. So as a result I will queue up more than once as I process through check in, immigration, security, customs etc. I can't circumvent these steps, it's part of the journey to enable me to visit a distant land. My destination and purpose of… Continue reading The Other Side – {Lent}

O Sacred Head, Surrounded – {Lent}

O sacred head, surrounded by crown of piercing thorn! O bleeding head, so wounded, reviled and put to scorn! Our sins have marred the glory of thy most holy face, yet angel hosts adore thee and tremble as they gaze I see thy strength and vigor all fading in the strife, and death with cruel… Continue reading O Sacred Head, Surrounded – {Lent}

The Traitor and the Betrayal – {Lent}

It would probably be true to say that not many of us will be unscathed by a betrayal or a hurt from a friend. Over the course of our lives most of us would have at some point been let down, hurt or betrayed by a friend. I know I have. Sometimes unintentionally, sometimes intentionally. It can come in… Continue reading The Traitor and the Betrayal – {Lent}
