Stanley Tucci: Simple Pleasures. Small Joys.

00:00 00:00

Hello my dear,

We live in a world that loves it when we are shiny. But, when you are like the rest of us—which is to say—fragile and dependent, then Lent is made for you. Lent is that moment in the Christian story where we get to tell the truth: the world is capable of incredible beauty, but it can also be filled with so much suffering.

Lent is a 40-day stretch of both hope and the reality of the brokenness in the world. Sometime things are incredibly awful, and we need each other as we hunt for hope and make our way through. As a Lenten practice for the Everything Happens community, I will be posting a video every morning on Instagram, as well as sending out daily email reflections to help orient our day. Because we are in this together, this whole human thing. I hope you'll join me.

Onward together,
