       Cities across the world celebrate the day-before with colorful parades and over-the-top parties. Then Wednesday arrives... Sigh. Lent. has. begun.

You hear about devout friends giving up seemingly innocent things in life (like chocolate) or stressing out to live a more perfect life during six grueling weeks for reasons you don't completely understand. Sermons about penitence are preached, and guilt soaks the congregation.

Sound like a good time?! It's time to rethink Lent.

Or at least see it for the positive opportunity it offers. It's spring-cleaning for the soul! Lent offers you time to pause, consider, and renew your relationship with God an altogether hopeful (not dreary) experience.

'To arrive at newness of life, we first name parts of our lives that are shrouded in darkness,' writes Parsons. 'To put it very dramatically...your first order of business is to break your heart for God. We walk through some muck so that we can leave it behind and find Easter joy beyond... With God's help we will clear the darkness away and begin to experience greater joy and newness of life.'

Sure, there's work to be done during Lent, but it's the gentle, gradual work of opening one's heart and mind to grace. A Clearing Space will move you week by week from 'wilderness to holy ground,' using a personal tone that will stir and challenge personal reflection.

Parsons includes exercises for small groups, as well as questions at the end of each chapter for individual reflection. Also included is an appendix of spiritual practices for Lent you may not have considered before.
