Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ! Before I myself forget, this week’s almsgiving for Lent is glasses, whether old pairs of our own, or new readers we might purchase at a drug store.
Perhaps with this gift we may think of Jesus’ restoring sight to the blind and continue to think of the ways we may do God’s work by different means, with our own gifts. Jesus’ abilities may sometimes seem so miraculous that we forget their very practical application. The blind were given sight; the lame walked; the dead were resurrected. Wait, what? As we move through Holy Week, knowing with hindsight that we are looking toward Easter, we may forget the story of Jesus’ raising Lazarus. Tied this week to the prophetic account of the dry bones in Ezekiel, this story of new life and hopefulness invites us toward hope, as well. In our worship and in our fellowship together, we pray to grow our hope and our resilience. Join us?
Blessings and peace, Lisa
