As we start our journey this season, while we wade through the “deep,” let us remember what is ours, and what belongs in the hands of God.
Beginning Feb. 17 (Ash Wednesday) and culminating on April 4 (Easter), Goshen College students, faculty and staff will provide weekday reflections based on the upcoming Sunday’s lectionary Scripture passages, available online at www.goshen.edu/devotions, or by subscribing to the daily email.
Jesus is as alive now as he ever was. Perhaps we are in just the position to accept this “quietly dramatic” appearance of God in the flesh and the unlikely evangelist celebrating the miracle.
God can move mountains, turn a few fish into a feast and make the blind see.
God has given each of us the opportunity to fully focus during this time of quarantine, this time of Lent.
Show us how you can help us turn our present circumstances, world situations, and our hearts into the miracles of new life.
In our obedience lies the joy and celebration that grows out of our relationship with God and the people in our lives.
Lent is a time of reflection, devotion and sometimes struggle.
For in the time when we celebrate living through a plague, we are living through a plague ourselves.
Leaning in again on these lyrics and these passages to help guide my understanding of death and the promised life that follows.
