Turn to the spirit within you! As we approach Easter, look around your world in wonder and appreciation.
As snow starts to melt, green grass returns, flowers start to sprout, and the world reawakens. I am privileged to be staying on a beef farm. I came to the farm yesterday to new birth! A little calf! Joy, hope and a peaceful feeling came over me. I said a prayer for momma and baby thanking God for being there when I was not…from the very heart of a suffering, sacred world.
Our world is in turmoil. There is a sense of desperation about the war in Ukraine, the next COVID wave in China, news about the increase in racist attacks in Canada and the need to reverse climate change on the planet.
Where do you turn? Do you wonder how all this affects you? Do you wonder what you, as one person, can do to make a difference?
Turn to the spirit within you! Use the tools that you have been taught and the tools we are being given. I have been very appreciative of the Daily Bread Lenten practices that are offered to guide us.
Daily Bread - March 15, 2022
Reads in part...
There IS a vision greater
There IS a Spirit moving
There IS a deeper yearning
That means something real
There IS a God creating
And re-creating still
Who continues to call out
In the caverns of your soul
From the very heart of a
Suffering, sacred world.

We are getting closer to Easter. Our themes from World Church have been our guide. Enter the Wilderness, Count the Stars and Seek the Lord! Isaiah 55:6 “Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near”.
Yours in Christ,
Gwyn, Kat, and Shannon
