The lectionary for Year A offers us many stories
of Jesus encountering people who are seeking:
Nicodemus comes to him in the veil of night, he
approaches a Samaritan woman at a well, he heals
a man born without sight. In these stories, each
person is seeking a new beginning, a different
life, a deeper faith. What unfolds is an exchange
filled with questions and exploration. Often, an
unveiling occurs—assumptions are disrupted, a new
perspective is revealed, mystery grows.

This Lent, we invite you to engage in the spiritual
practice of seeking. We encourage you to stay
curious, open, and nimble. We hope you will soften
your assumptions and expand your perspectives. We
pray that these questions will create a safe space to
explore—to be drawn more deeply into the fullness
of life, into the heart of God.
