“We’ve been very clear when we first proposed a season of repentance that this is about the biblical admonition that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and that every one of us has areas in our lives individually, and corporately that require repentance…some of that repentance is around how we treat one another, how we have worked with, or not with one another. And that we believe that all of us can examine ourselves in the season of Lent,” says Bishop Linda Nicholls of the Diocese of Huron.

The Autumn and early part of this new year has (sic) been a particularly demanding and stressful time for me and for my family. Demanding, because there is so much to be done in my different responsibilities, and operating in the midst of fast-moving events in our Anglican churches. Stressful, because in addition to my mother’s deteriorating health, I have been confronted with very difficult personal matters. – Andrew Lines
