Gather your light, your reflection book your mantra: "I am the light of the world ... where there is darkness let me bring light." and your soul in a quiet moment as we go this week.
As you move through this fourth full week of Lent, let your mantra move you, repeated over and over until it is part of you.
As you spend some time with John's gospel for the Fourth Sunday of Lent, reading it over slowly and thoughfully and spend some time with Joan's reflection, consider this: What are your first reactions to Joan's wisdom?
Consider your love affair with Jesus that leads you to growth -- a love that saves rather than judges. Discuss one way you can light the world with such love.
