Lent can be considered a spiritual "speed bump" slowing us down from our routine of busyness. The readings this weekend point to slowing down in order to be able to hear the still small whispering voice of God. So this week waste some time learning to discern God's voice from all the those other voices clamoring for our attention.
Readings: Genesis 22:1-2, 9a, 10-13, 15-18; Psalm 116; Romans 8:31b-34; Mark 9:2-10
