Only a few days left in Lent. Still a couple of long walks and cycle rides left. Today is a train day into Salisbury.
The press want to know what I have learnt about myself. A good Lenten question. Someone else asked whether it has brought me closer to God. Another good Lenten question.
I’ve been reminded of many things. The importance of taking individual actions. That faith is there to be enjoyed. (And how much I like cycling).
But about myself? I’m still thinking that one through. It’s something to do with the way that the car leaves you so in control. Something to do with the way that when you are cycling your senses are so alive. The sounds. The smells. The weather, both good and bad. I’ve had a few soakings. I’m on the train, and I’ve been watching a hare racing across a green field in the sunshine.
I think this is going to be my Holy Week question. What have I learnt about myself this Lent?
