First Sunday in Lent – C2
Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16
In some ways Lent is a sheltered workshop. Here we develop skills while on the job. Here we employ skills developed through repetition.
In the refuge of Lent we practice knowing all is well and will be well again. We practice acting from a position of knowing we are guarded - boldly. We practice living from a perspective of having been borne up - thankfully. We practice living from a platform of steadfast love - mercifully.
Out of this practice come changed lives - as changed as resurrection or other metamorphoses.
Isn't it good to know we have been sheltered in the shadow of trustworthiness. Isn't it good to know we shelter others in this same gift.
