The Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
May we be able to look beyond the surface of the familiar stories and be drawn in by Jesus, who confuses our expectations.
Jesus is the orchardist who is committed to acting in our lives. Christ is the one who brings salve to our wounds. We are made right by the loving, Creator God.
If people stop their praising then the stones will shout: Hosanna, praised be God on high!
When the Israelites looked to Moses for water, God gave them what they longed for.
Remember how you were sustained before.
Now that we have entered into the sacred space of the Lenten and Easter season of the Church year, we are invited to simply watch as the story of the Christ event unfolds and act by letting go of our industry.
Dialogues, or perhaps debates, such as this one within the Bible increase my sense of wonder at the wisdom contained in the conversation among those who seek God － a conversation into which we are invited.
This Lenten season, wherever you are, I invite you to join me in living out hope, lifting our eyes to the God who does not slumber.
