// off the grid

I’m off to India at about 10pm tonight and i’m not taking anything electronic, which means i’ll not be blogging for the next two weeks – although if i’ve invited you to contribute to this blog over Lent, then do feel free to continue doing this in my absence.

If you want more information about what we’re doing (not least on how to pray) do check out my last post, india, social action and St Patrick. I’ll keep a journal during our time out there and probably take some footage too so you can expect something to be put together when i’m back.

And while i’m at it, happy Easter, too!

(He is risen!)

I’m meditating on 2 Corinthians 4 during my time away – among other things – and it provides a fitting message for what it means to be a Christian in what can frequently seem disheartening times:

For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us…

Why not join me in meditating on that during this time? I’d love to hear your thoughts and i firmly believe that if you read that once a day and really get under its skin, it will blow your mind. But hey, try it and see.

See you in two weeks.
