Today’s reading: Isaiah 41:18-20

As we reflect on these past few days and the beginning of Lent, I invite you to soak in this illustration, read the following poem, and take a breath. Remember Jesus coming to this green earth, how the disciples were called, and how water was turned into wine.

And then, empty your mind and rest.

ReflectionFor creation to rise and be seen,
In gathering to witness miracles be free,
Greatness will come in fullness of light.

Midst courage in pain some friendships begin,
And married to hope with justice complete;
Let followers of grace testify to darkness,
And forgiveness welcome the innocence run wild.

Through thorntrees of mourning endured the truth,
In search of large arks with wine;
Rivers will run to baptize thou art.

Like every tree that is differently defined
And promised with each some beautiful figs,
May renewed peace be fragrant with life
And Love of truth cheerfully evergreen.
