Amen" - St. Ephraim the SyrianAs Lent begins let us not focus on self-denial, but instead "Alter Your Perception" and become transformed through Christ."

3Cary W = "If we encounter a problem, imbalance, illness or sin, be it our own or another's, it is still our problem, for it has shown up in our life for the very reason of being confronted and transformed. In this way, we take on the Mantle of Christ, and choose to be His light in the darkness we encounter. Amen."
