Return to Me with Your Whole Heart

This article appears in the Lenten Daily Food Reflections feature series. View the full series.





As we near the halfway point of our Lenten journey, today's scripture reminds us that God is merciful with the words: 

"Even now, says the LORD,

return to me with your whole heart;

for I am gracious and merciful."

Joel 2:12-13


How is God inviting you to return with your whole heart to your Lenten practice of fasting? Do you feel called to explore any new Lenten practices with regard to food and food waste?
