Lent, Day 7

We are a week into Lent and hope that you are feeling God's presence with you.  Join us this evening at 6pm for dinner and 7pm for classes designed to strengthen your connection to God and to this community of faith.  

A friend passed this along from a devotional she is using this Lent.  It comes from the book,  The Ignatian Workout for Lent by Tim Muldoon.

"Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, 'The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent and believe in the good news.'" Mark 1:14-15

 "The cornerstone of what Jesus wants to share is that God is right here, right now, laboring among us. He labors not as some transcendent other, but rather as a person inviting us to partake in a grand, unfolding project. Jesus' invitation, then, is this: to be part of that project, because God needs you to be love where you live. If you aren't that love, who else will do that part of God's project? Who else will agree to be love to your family, your friends, your coworkers, your circle of influence?

 Are you willing to set aside your limited perception of the world and allow yourself to learn from Jesus and the followers of Jesus who have been at it longer than you? Are you willing to participate in a grand, unfolding project of being love for the world, being love for the specific men, women, boys and girls your life touches? Are you willing to look at all things the way God does and test your understanding against the wisdom of the church? Are you willing to let your life sing to the tune that God conducts, as part of a grand symphony?"

May God be with you in your wondering.
