Day 5, Lent

Today is the first Sunday of Lent and we will celebrate the Lord's Supper in worship today.  This prayer by Roddy Hamilton reminds us of the Transfiguration last Sunday and the new season of Lent in which we find ourselves now.  

Past Glory

Where is the glory now?

All that light from last week
all that wonder
and mystery
turns to dust and ashes
and a single set of footprints in the sand

Where is the glory now?

All that revelation on the mountain top
and sharp light
turns to bread and wine
and a table waiting for those willing to pick up the cross

Let us break bread together
and begin this new journey
finding in the crumbs and the dust
the deeper, broken glory
of love’s way


As we gather at the Lord's table, we are reminded that we are people who know the whole story, who know about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.  We are nourished for our journey as we pray for the faithfulness to go with Christ to the cross.

Peace,
Laurie
