Lent List 8 ~ Transformation

What is your relationship with Christ? What is your relationship with prayer? With scripture? With worship and the sacraments? With the reality of your own sin?
I’ve written before about question eight here. A Christian relationship is about transformation into discipleship; its cumulative. It's not a Harry Potter’s magic-wand event, and it doesn't happen with Christian habituality. I've found it happens with practice, cultivation, agape, and in community.
If praying, listening, writing, speaking, or working with any one of these questions facilitates spiritual transformation then the work to begin to ponder and answer any of the 6 questions of Lent List 8 is worthwhile. Just like the monks working their garden for food the fruit of spiritual transformation is cumulative.
