Lent 3.17

Today is St. Patrick's day.  Patrick was a former slave in Ireland who became the "Apostle to Ireland."  He ministered all over Ireland in his pursuit to destroy paganism and lift up the name of the Triune God. 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. I love you, O Lord my strength. The Lord is my rock,  my fortress and... Read More

Lent 3.16

Mary Oliver is the best!  Her poetry is simple and so beautiful.  She speaks of faith and the world and of paying attention.  Her poem, aptly called, "Praying," is one of my favorites. It doesn't have to be the blue iris, it could be weeds in a vacant lot, or a few small stones; just pay attention, then patch a few words together and don’t try to make them elaborate, this isn’t a contest but the doorway  into thanks, and a silence in...

Lent 3.13

This week the blog will focus on prayer.  There are a million ways to pray and a million ways to think about prayer.  I believe that how we pray or when we pray doesn't matter to God.  What matters is that we pray.  God desires to be in relationship with us and in conversation with us.  A friend shared this refleciton on prayer with me and I wanted to share it with you. Prayer Is Being Silent by Richard Rohr Prayer is largely just being silent: holding the... Read More

Lent 3.12 Second Sunday in Lent

Today is the second Sunday in Lent.  Today in worship, or here on the blog, you'll be surrounded by these words from the Gospel of John.  Read the story of Nicodemus and think about the questions you'd ask Jesus or the things you don't understand about Jesus.  Think about how you have been reborn in Jesus and how Christ is doing nothing short than making all things new.  Now there was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews. He came to Jesus by...
