While many define Christianity as a kind of moral contest, the gospel is about God’s love for us in spite of our brokenness.
Do you “see” the vulnerable? Or do you “see” the powerful who look down upon the vulnerable, powerless and stigmatized, yearning for God’s mercy?
Believing in the resurrection of the dead, let us have the courage to walk into the darkness of this world and bring the love of God, the light of Christ, the joy of the Holy Spirit.
So, welcome to Lent. Pray: empty me, in whatever ways you can. Change my routine. Help me listen. Help me to fast, pray, give, and trust.
