Today’s sermon involved play balls, hand motions, and a reminder to be reflective and intentional about how we are spending our time and energy. This all-ages reflection was an invitation to use Lent, the “springtime for the soul,” as an opportunity to consider whether the ways we spend our energy and our time glorify God and live the gospel.

Barbara Brown Taylor quotation is taken from her sermon “Lenten Discipline,” published in Home By Another Way by Barbara Brown Taylor, (Cambridge, MA: Cowley Publications, 1999), pp. 66.
