Reflection of the Week

Highlights for Worship: March 21st, 2021.

We continue our Lenten sermon series “Loving Life” by focusing on living “The Centered Life, Living the New Covenant”. The message this week focuses on the new covenant told of by Jeremiah. He predicted this time of hope in Jeremiah 31:31-34. We will reflect on how we can live this new covenant of love today.

During these 40 days before Easter, we will continue to honestly assess whether we love the life we lead or whether cynicism, frustration, or despair have eclipsed life’s joy.

To clear-away the negativity that clouds our view, we will practice Christian contemplation, growing in our ability to recognize God’s Spirit in any time or place. Contemplation is the practice of merely living, full of the love of self, God, and neighbor.

We will follow Father Richard Rohr’s wise counsel, one of the foremost Christian spiritual growth teachers in our time. Fr. Rohr’s Center for Action and Contemplation daily devotions are designed to help us to live more gratefully in our skin and in this world which God has created. 

May this Lenten season be a sacred one so that we may rise on Easter morning, free from our burdens and newly alive in God’s Spirit.

I hope we can worship together virtually this Sunday!

Scripture Passages of the Week

Jeremiah 31:31-34

The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. It will not be like the covenant that I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt—a covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, says the Lord. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, ‘Know the Lord’, for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the Lord; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.
