Welcome to this blog, which has been created as a joint project between the parishes of All Hallows by the Tower, St Botolph’s Aldgate and St Botolph’s Bishopsgate.
Here, you will find a daily reflection during Lent, provided by a wide range of contributors, some in video format, most in words.
Here, you will be able to interact, and hopefully contribute your thoughts as together we all reflect on the meaning of the desert in the heart of the City of London, at a time when many are pressured, anxious and wondering what is to be.
Here, we hope, you will find connection and an outlet for reflection on the meaning of the Cross, which looms on the horizon as we set off on our lenten journey, and as we – like Jesus himself – are more particularly aware of the wilderness and solitude around us, even in the midst of one of the busiest Cities on the planet.
Thank you for following us, and may your Lenten journey be blessed, that together we may all be ready to welcome the risen Christ at Easter.
Alan, Laura and Bertrand
