which explore the idea of wilderness and oasis.

Our Christian life can be seen as a journey or pilgrimage. 
There are a few amazing experiences but we often find ourselves in times of confusion, boredom, dryness or suffering. 
What we might call periods of wilderness and moments of oasis. 
During Lent we think of Jesus’s time in the desert before his temptation by the Devil. 
This time in the wilderness was a time of preparation for Jesus’ public ministry. 
So, wilderness isn’t necessary bad but it can be difficult.

The Lent period is actually 40 days + 6 Sundays.
These blog entries were contributed by various members of the congregation during Lent 2022
The wilderness entries were created for Monday to Saturday and the Oasis entries for the Sundays
