Westminster Chimes - March 2014
Dear Friends in Christ,
On Wednesday March 5th we mark the beginning of Lent. This is a period of forty days, excluding Sundays which lead us to our Easter celebration. It is a time for personal reflection and spiritual growth.
Andrew Murray speaks of this when he writes of humility. “Humility is perfect quietness of heart. It is for me to have no trouble; never to be fretted or vexed or irritated or sore or disappointed. It is to expect nothing, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me and when I am blamed or despised. It is to have a blessed home in the Lord where I can go in and shut the door and kneel to my Father in secret and be at peace as in a deep sea of calmness when all around is trouble. It is the fruit of the Lord Jesus Christ's redemptive work on Calvary's cross, manifested in those of His own who are definitely subject to the Holy Spirit.”
May our spiritual journey through Lent be marked with a new found love and devotion to Christ.
With a grateful heart, I remain,

A Project for Lent
“As Christians, joy should animate our lives. One may not be, and probably is not, always happy but one should try to be always joyful.
The more cognizant I am of God’s abiding presence and action in my life, the less likely I am to be troubled and disturbed by what goes on around or even in me.
Searching for this deeper reality can be a good project for Lent.”
