Lent 3.20

During the season of Lent we talk a lot about repentance.  Not simply about our sinfulness and the ways we need to seek forgiveness from God, but about the ways that we turn back from God.  Repentance is a re-orientation, a process or moment in which we turn back to God and seek wholeness that only God can give.  This week we'll explore repentance.   Here is a poem entitled, "The Road to Damascus: 6," by Tania Runyan I have sinned, I said. I want eternal... Read More

Lent 3.18

I love this poem by Mother Theresa.  It has been with me for some time now and I return to it over and over as a reminder, or when I need a dose of hope, or moment of clarity.  I hope you enjoy it to and that it walks witn you in this Lenten season.    St. Theresa's Prayer May today there be peace within.   May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

Here is a simple prayer attributed to St. Patrick. In the name of the King of life: in the name of the Christ of love: in the name of the Holy Spirit: the Triune of my strength.

Katie McNabb is well known among our community of faith.  She has her own blog where she writes about faith.  In this post, she writes around the question, "Does it matter what we pray for?"  Here are her words of wisdom:   Does it matter what we pray for? by Katie McNabb Do I have a right to ask something of God when I already enjoy so many blessings? Am I somehow becoming greedy when I pray for something for myself? Isn’t it silly to request... Read More

Lent 3.11

As we end the week when we focus on temptation, ponder these words by Walter Brueggemann in his book,  Sabbath as Resistance.  "Multitasking is the drive to be more than we are, to control more than we do, to extend our power and our effectiveness.  Such practice yields a divided self, with full attention given to nothing."  Try today to be mindful in what you are doing, at least for a few minutes.  Give your full attention to eating your breakfast,...
