This is the fourth week of Lent: just as Israel wandered in the desert for forty years, and Jesus fasted in the wilderness for forty days, we are still walking with Jesus toward the cross. Scripture passage: John 3:1-9I wonder why Jesus said that his Spirit is like the wind? I wonder what the word-pictures of wind and breath can show me about God?I wonder why Jesus said that to see God’s kingdom, I have to be born again? I wonder what parts of me need new breath or new life?I wonder: can I remember being born? Being born is something that happens for us, whether we are ready or not. We aren’t the ones who make it happen. I wonder how God’s new life is like that?Some of the things Jesus says in this story are a little mysterious. I wonder if I can trust God to speak to me when I hear words that are hard to understand?This is the fourth week of Lent. I wonder if this season is starting to feel long? I wonder if I can ask God to help me continue to wait and hope, even when Easter feels so far away?Living God, when you send your Spirit, you create living things; you give new life to the ground, and to dry bones. We will sing songs of praise to you, the Giver of Life, as long as we have breath in our lungs. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

This is the third week of Lent: just as Israel wandered in the desert for forty years, and Jesus fasted in the wilderness for forty days, we are still spending this season walking with Jesus toward the cross. Today’s reading is from the gospel of John, chapter 15 verses 1 through 9. I wonder how water and nutrients move through a vine and into its branches? I wonder how vines make their fruit grow?I wonder if I can imagine being joined to Jesus, like a branch that grows out of a vine? I wonder how being that close to Jesus makes me feel?I wonder if I ever feel disconnected, like a branch that has fallen to the ground? I wonder if it’s hard to believe, sometimes, that I can be filled with Jesus’ life? What do I want to say to God about that?I wonder what fruit Jesus is slowly growing in me right now? Can I ask God to help me see the ordinary ways that I show his love and life to the people around me? I wonder what it feels like to rest and remain in Jesus’ love? Can I sit quietly, and imagine Jesus’ love moving through me, like the sap from a vine?Jesus, you are the vine and we are the branches. Forgive us when we forget that, and try to grow and live on our own. Fill us with your eternal life, so that your fruit of love and grace can grow in our lives and feed your world.In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

This is the second week of Lent: just as Israel wandered in the desert for forty years, and Jesus fasted in the wilderness for forty days, we will spend the next four weeks walking with Jesus toward the cross. Scripture passage: Luke 15:1-10I wonder why some people were upset about who Jesus was having dinner with? I wonder what they wanted him to do differently?I wonder if I have ever felt lost, or separated, or alone? Are there places I go where I don’t feel safe or at home? Do I need to tell someone I love? Can I talk to God about that feeling?Have I ever found something I have loved, and lost? Can I remember what that felt like on the inside? I wonder if God feels exactly that way about me?I wonder if I can believe that God is always looking for me because God delights in me? That I bring God joy? That God’s party isn’t complete without me there?I wonder if I can be still right now, and trust that God will seek me out? Can I ask God to help me wait and hope, because I know that he is loving and good?Kind God, all of us are like sheep. We have wandered away from you. But you are like the shepherd, who will look until you find us. Help us to wait, and watch, and hope to be found. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
