MUSINGS FROM MIKE

‘Walk With Me’

There are some walks you can’t wait to take.  With someone special on a date that is going well.  With your kids to do nothing in particular with the phone on silent.  To church when it is a bright and good day and you see lots of smiles in the room.

There are some walks nobody wants to take.  To court, the emergency room, principal’s office, or your boss when a project has gone upside down.  To church when it is a tough memorial service and it feels like all the air has been drawn out of the room.

Lent is both of those kinds of walks.
 
Lent invites you and me to know that everything in this world and in our lives is not as it should be.  Lent challenges us to get outside of our comfort zones.  Lent demands that we pay attention in prayer, Scripture reading, and simply being present for everyday life.
 
Lent is also one of the greatest walks you can take.  To the empty tomb of Jesus.  To the promise of more.  To knowing that you matter so much to Jesus that he would do all of this for you…

It is a walk that makes all the other walks of life make more sense…and worth doing.

I wish you a holy Lent that gives insight and joy.

Shalom,
Pastor Mike
