Lent 4.14

The community Good Friday service is at WPC today at noon if you'd like to join us.  On this saddest of days, these words of poetry still me and scare me a little.  And I think that is ok today. Friday by Hannah Faith Notess Maybe the prisoner's mother did't block her ears against the swinging whip, the dragging chain, the buzz of voltage that set off fireworks in the brain. Maybe she has strength to hold his body one more time, once  it is finished.... Read More

Lent 4.12

John O'Donohue writes some of the most beautiful blessings.  The one below is called, "For Courage."  As we find ourselves in the midst of this Holy Week, it seems that praying for courage to continue to journey with Christ as he suffers is fitting. For Courage   When the light around you lessens And your thoughts darken until Your body feels fear turn Cold as a stone inside When you find yourself bereft Of any belief in yourself And all you unknowingly...

Lent 4.10

Yesterday was Palm Sunday, but I came across this poem by Hannah Faith Notess and wanted to share it with you as you begin your Holy Week. Sunday After the parade, the tired donkey wanders back to her stall. Among the bruised feathery branches,  a dog licks at a half-eaten snack wrapped in a leaf, and the palms, whoes boughs are done being cut down, begin again to whisper their fragile green music. Mud crusts and dries on abandoned, trampled cloaks, and the women carry... Read More

Lent 4.8

Today is Satruday, traditionally the day of Sabbath for Jewish people.  Practicing the Sabbath is a commandment for us as Christians as well, although it tends to be one we often neglect or ignore.  Sabbath was designed for us by God.  We are called to rest, called to remember who we are and who God is, and called to practice noticing the presence and power of God.  Walter Brueggemann wrote an awesome book on Sabbath and says this, " YHWH is a Sabbath-keeping God,...
