Fast from quick judgments: Everything has a label these days....but labels aren't always something to be desired. When we label people, we are not seeing them as people, indivitudals, children of God. This week, for every perosn that you see, take a moment, see them, don't label them, see them as a unique perosn with their own story, on their own journey.

Fast from being closed: This one might take a little description. Sometimes in our life, we have a profound experience, but then we forget, time passes, and we move on. This was not the case for the woman at the well. When she encountered Jesus, not only was that a life-changing experience, but she went out and shared it with her whole village. This week, when we encounter God, let's not keep it to ourselves, let's not be closed off, but we too can go out and change the world around us.

Fast from Fear: In Lent we are called out into the desert, called to the mountain top, called away from it all, to be with God. This can be intimidating; we wonder what will happen, and how we will react. We are faced with another challenge when we go to be with God - we leave distractions behind. And when we leave them behind we are faced with ourselves....who we really are. This week, join God on the mountain top, and do not be afraid, but let God tell you who you really are to him.

Follow:  The magi followed the star, seeking the Messiah, the King. This week, reflect on what you follow. Do you follow sports, news, trends. How important is following these? How much of yourself do you invest in these? Spend a little more time each day seeking Jesus, following the Light.

Prepare: Spend some time this week looking at how much time and effort you put into things in your life. Then, look at how much time you spend preparing to meet God; how do they compare?
