So there goes Jesus spinning power on its head again. His power was not in crushing but in being crushed, triumphing over the empire’s sword with his cross. Mustard must be crushed, ground, broken for its power to be released. — Shane Claiborne

FAST from pointing out other people’s mistakes and shortcomings today.

GIVE — share with someone a spiritual experience you’ve had this Lent.

BONUS: Share your Lenten spiritual experience with us in the comments section below. We’d love to read it!
