Thefutureis darkness,scary becausewe cannot see it.Sorrow, loss, even deathawait us but there is hope.Living life brings light to the day.In God there is no darkness at all,and with faith, peace will dwell in heart and mind.
Liferequirestaking risks.We need courageto live everything…to not be so carefulthat we don’t experienceall that God has gifted to us.We can discover joy in sorrowso long as fear does not get in the way.
Wemust prayfor those whohave lost their way.Justice is emptyif not imbued with grace.Forgiveness is powerful,a reverent acceptance thathumility is the hand of Godpulling off the veil of our humanness.
Peaceis ahealing word,invoking avision of wholeness.It is God’s hope for us.We live in a broken place.When we spread God’s peace to others,we place our hands into the world’s woundsand with Christ, become healers of the world.
Whenwe feaston the breadand drink the wine,we receive the lifeof Christ into ourselvesand we come alive with it!We remember not who Christ wasbut who he is in the here and now.We are the vessels of Christ in the world.
Graceis allaround usin abundance.Grace takes great courage.Grace is strength not weakness.Do not use grace sparingly.Accept grace when offered to you.Against hate, grace is the best defense.The power of grace is within us all.
Lentdeparts.Easter dawnswith renewed hopein a world askew,still reeling with discord.We are now Easter peopletransformed by the gift of God’s lovein the risen body of Jesus.Rejoicing, we walk into the future.
ThePassionof Easteris a storynot of life but death,a mystery of faithbecause Jesus is risenand we believe in His return.We celebrate His resurrectionnot because He lived but that He lives still.
Whenthe breathmeets Spirit,transformationmanifests itselfin a powerful way.Our silence becomes prayer.Our longing becomes compassion.What was and is becomes what will be.The invisible becomes visible.
