Lent 3.22

Psalm 51 offers our prayer that God would create in us a clean spirit and turn us again towards God's will and God's ways.  Nan Merrill, using lovely and poetic language, rewites Psalm 51 for us below.  Her words evoke a sense of peace and calm in me...and I hope in you as well. Psalm 51 Have mercy on me, O Gracious One, according to your steadfast love; According to your abundant kindness forgive me where my thoughts and deeds have hurt others. Lead me in the paths of...

Lent 3.14

Lent 3.6

You may have seen this video before, but I like the way it puts some visuals around the story of Jesus in the wilderness.  Notice how Jesus changes and the way they use color to give clues to what is going on.  With the music, it is a reminder that Jesus suffered, both here and on the cross, out of love for humanity.

Lent 3.5, First Sunday

Today is the first Sunday of Lent.  The scripture for today tells us about Jesus tempted in the wilderness.  The blog posts this week will focus on temptation.   Matthew 4:1-11 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. He fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he was famished. The tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he...
