Practicing Lent Week 6

wk 6 graphicClick here to read or listen to daily reflections for this week.

This is our last week of Lent before Holy Week. The Rev. Dr. John Lewis begins the week with a reflection for Sunday, Mar. 22, the fifth Sunday in Lent. Lewis draws from chapter 11 of Hebrews to remind us of the faithful who have gone before and are now part of the Cloud of Witnesses that continues to strengthen and guide us.

On Monday, Mar 23, we take a deep look at the Jesus prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

On Tuesday the Rev. Paul Frey talks about what he finds behind the washing machine when he moves it to make way for a new one. Then he suggests we might clean out some spiritual spaces to make way for God to move in.

The Rev. Jennifer Brooke-Davidson tells us to just “show up” on Wednesday – show up at city council meetings, HOA meetings, Chamber of Commerce meetings. Show up in unexpected places and speak for God.

On Thursday, Sylvia Maddox invites us to learn more about Thomas Merton – the Trappist Monk who introduced an entire generation to contemplative spirituality.

The Rev. Mike Marsh returns to the desert mothers and fathers on Friday to talk about fasting from words.
