Kristin, this is a delight....especially the first lines about 'crabbed Lent' from Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

I'm so grateful to be a paid subscriber....this offering is beautiful!

This is so lovely! Is there anyway to purchase a copy of this calendar without being a subscriber?

Making me want to read Gawain! My husband read a new translation a few years back and it seemed a little esoteric to my taste but this is so beautiful thanks Kristin! Have a blessed Lent 💜

I studied Gawain at University 30 plus years ago and that translation is really lovely. As we are heading into shortening days here in Australia, although it is still very hot, reading that excerpt and then having your calendar to colour is a gentle addition to my Lenten practices. I am in a group who meet each week, have a piece of art in line with the theme (which is Pieta this year) to look at, reflect upon and then some scripture and reflections written by a panel of people. It is a Catholic perspective. During the week we have a shorter daily practice. I enjoy it a lot.
