Good Morning, Gloria Dei Family!

This is the day that the Lord has made-let us rejoice and be glad in it!  

While we are confined to our homes, the birds are outside singing, oblivious to the worldwide pandemic.
I do hope you are able to get outside to enjoy it, whether or not you choose to sing with the birds.

 

Blessings to you in these troubling times,
+Pastor Peggy

Daily Devotional for Saturday, April 4, 2020

 

 

May God’s wondrous love be with you during this Lenten season as you walk with Jesus and live into your baptism.

 

Matthew 27:38-40

Then two bandits were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. Those who passed by derided him, shaking their heads and saying, “You who would destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.”

 

To ponder

We need people – and sometimes need to be people – who are willing to go to extremes. But we should also hope to be among those people who can find their way around the middle ground…recognizing what rich territory may be found there.

Marilyn McEntyre, Make a List

 

Holy ground

   On each side of Jesus on the cross is a bandit, a convicted criminal condemned to die the cruel death of crucifixion. Based on the circumstances, passersby jump to the conclusion that Jesus is also guilty, a fraud claiming to be God’s Son.

   When the Son of God refuses to come down from the cross, we begin to suspect that there is more going on here than meets the eye. The ground that holds the cross is sacred, holy and precious. Jesus’ suffering and death reveal a gracious alternative to life defined and ruled by hasty and superficial assumptions that divide people into winners and losers, insiders and outsiders, and “us” versus “them.”

   Jesus honors the “rich territory” that is free from the callous judgments. He who was crucified and died is with all who suffer from violence, abuse, and injustice. He is with all who work to change systems that perpetuate cycles of poverty and marginalization. He is with all who stand in the “middle ground” to mediate between opposing sides. Jesus’ suffering and death will reveal God’s power to bring about justice, transformation, and a new creation for all.

 

Prayer

Holy One, your justice mirrors you grace. Free me from shallow judgments. Use me in bringing about your new creation.  Amen.

Ways to keep “being the Church,”

even when we can’t be in the church building. 

Worship tools available-

  • Pray often, the power of prayer is great. Pray for your church family.  And send notes.  Make phone calls. All the things that we do for shut-ins, do for each other now that we are all shut-ins, so to speak. We are one body, even when that body is not together in the flesh.
