Weekly News-Feb 28

I was walking to my car this morning, coffee in hand, mind full of thoughts and details of the day, when I heard a sound.  A sound that I haven’t heard in quite a while, and though it was not exceptionally loud, it broke through my busy thoughts.  And it made me stop and smile as I listened.  It was the song of a starling, singing it’s unique 2-note call.  I’ve been told that when you hear the song of a starling, it means that spring is near.  So whether that’s true or not, it gives me hope and reminds me that winter will eventually end and that spring is indeed coming.  I thanked God for that bird song this morning and for allowing me to hear it with the promise of spring to come. 

Listening.  Pausing.  Being mindful of not only the world around us, but of what’s going on inside of us too.  Things to consider as we enter this season of Lent.  Here at Malmo, during the Lenten season, we will be exploring deeper what “listening” means – in the many different areas of our life.  I hope you’ll be able to join us as we Journey through Lent together for the next 6 weeks.

Have a great weekend and I hope to see you Sunday!
