Lent is one of the three 40-day `seasons' in the church's year,
besides Advent and the period from Easter to Pentecost. The name
itself, Lent, derives from an ancient word meaning `spring' or
`long', referring to the time of year when days are beginning to
lengthen and the world is turning from winter cold and dark to the
warmth and promise of spring. During this time, the church calls us
to a special period of prayer, self-examination and teaching - and
this book has been written to accompany you through that period, a
time of turning from winter to spring, from death to life. Dust and
Glory ranges across the whole business of living and believing,
where the questions are as important as the answers and may call us
to deep heart-searching. The goal is always to draw us to authentic
faith - a way of living and believing that is real and vulnerable,
strong in knowing its limits, rooted in joy and wonder, blessed
with the healing and merciful presence of God. Such faith
acknowledges both the dust of our mortality and the glory that
keeps breaking in with unexpected life, hope and new beginnings.
