First Sunday in Lent. From the reading in 1Thessalonians:
‘…we urge you and appeal to you in the Lord Jesus to make more and more progress in the kind of life that you are meant to live: the life that God wants, as you learned from us, and as you are already living it.’
Sense of circling and returning in a cycle rather than any kind of linear progression. But circling down, something going deeper.
