Stepping on the road to Advent is an opportunity as well as a challenge. The psalmist today longs for restoration, for God’s light to shine on her.
This year, it seems we’ve all been on a journey. That might be a journey of self discovery, how to cope with life during a pandemic, or how to best use the gifts we’ve been given to be salt and light to the world around us.
Beginning Nov. 23 and culminating on Christmas Day, Goshen College students, faculty and staff will provide reflections three days each week 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.
