God So Loved...
Lent begins on Valentine's Day. That's appropriate. The one who has loved us from our beginning and loves us to our end sent us a very special Valentine. "God so loved…"—those words remain so poignantly beautiful.
Our calling is to continue to share that love. Oh, how I long for us to live passionately into that calling. I long for us to celebrate God's love as it is revealed to us every day, in every moment , in every breath.
God has given us everything we have. How do we show our love for God?
We begin Lent with our prayer vigil on Ash Wednesday. It is such a special and sacred time. It is a time set a part. It is just 30 minutes for quietness but that time is like no other. There's something very special about this chain of prayer. Perhaps the fact that we are connected in this 24 hour time and connected with other Disciple churches in such a special way has something to do with it. I do think that having that uninterrupted time of solitude and spiritual discernment is transformative. I hope you will be a part of it and I pray as we enter into this time when we ponder the sacrifice of our Lord we will also ponder what it means for us to live as His disciples.
