May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

The rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

 

Sunday, March 20:  Lent III

Holy One, Word of Life, in these days of Lent, lead us through the wilderness where nothing seems familiar and into a place where we notice you calling us.  Lead us into a new day where we trust you with our fears and prejudices because we know you sent us Jesus to show us a better way to face the unknown.  In this season of Lent, travel with us as we face the places in our lives that would keep us from loving our neighbours.  Turn us gently, Lord, and may your Spirit find us willing.

Wendy MacLean, while at Christ U.C., Lyn, Ont.
