A Lent Hymn / Prayer.
The dearest idol I have known,
whate'er that idol be,
help me to tear it from Thy throne
and worship only Thee.
- by William Cowper, English hymn writer, 1772
While for many this season is marked by near worldwide political upheaval, a still stifling pandemic, and untold economic stress, for Christians it’s still the season of Lent; a time in which we remember the suffering of Jesus. As my Bishop Philip Jones says, “the church doesn’t go through time, time goes through the church.” There’s never been a moment in which the relevance of Lent has been more obvious.
