The Lenten season is a time for confession and repentance. The celebratory joy of the assurance of pardon, embodied by the Easter season, is almost already upon us. But let us sit with the corporate and private confession of sin a little while longer. Let us sit with the necessity for reparations a little while longer. Let us sit with our own complicity and guilt and privilege a little while longer. True repentance and reconciliation begins with a contrite heart.
