Today is Palm Sunday. It is a day when we hear familiar readings about the Passion of Jesus – a story of his last days on earth – the days that led up to his crucifixion. We understand that Jesus walked willingly into the darkness.
I recently came across a lovely poem by Dan Turner entitled, What Kind of God. The last line of the poem expresses well Christ’s mission.
My God . . . seeking darkness . . . to scatter Light.
To scatter Light.
May we remember, when we find ourselves in the midst of darkness, that we, too, are called to scatter Light.
Today is the Third Sunday of Lent
I love the story of the woman at the well in the Gospel of John – there is so much to reflect on – so many nuggets of wisdom. These words of Jesus offer such promise, “But the hour is coming, and is now here, when true worshipers will worship God in Spirit and truth; and indeed God seeks people to worship in this way. God is Spirit, and those who worship must worship in Spirit and truth.”
Even during Lent – even in our darker days – the Spirit is with us.
