The First Sunday of Lent

 

'Won't you let me take you on a sea-cruise,' once inquired an old doo-wop favorite. (Do you know the artist? As a kid, I was force-fed such music by my parents, so I know more songs of that era than I care to admit. There was no DYFS back then. Yes, dad really had a '56 Chevy. I shudder to think that mom actually owned a poodle skirt). But anyway, a sea-faring vessel is our setting for this first Sunday of our of Lenten discipline. The voyage however, is not so much an all-inclusive pleasure trip as it is a re-ordering of our lives and an examination of our Faith. Lent commences in the Ark of Noah and highlights the fears and chaos represented by water. While the water can bat us around and even take our lives, the Ark reassures us that God's Spirit hovers over the waters and carries His covenant promise, releasing and reordering life as it was meant to me. As Noah is among the animals of the ark and Jesus is among the animals of the desert, Lent demonstrates how our lives are to be renewed. Let us get on board. If we've ever contributed to the chaotic flood waters, let us now repent, pray, fast and give alms to build up one another and to glorify God. His Promise carries on in the safety of the Ark. His Word will not return void. Let us renew our Covenant with our Heavenly Father in this holy season of Grace.

 

 

God Bless you!!!!!!!
