Week of Lent 3 – March 27th – A home within a wilderness, a rest upon the way
Where is your home? Perhaps a farmhouse in the middle of a wind-swept field, or an apartment overlooking a city skyline, or a plot of land that has been in your family for generations, or a house you moved into just yesterday. Wherever our earthly homes lay, our true dwelling place remains with God.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the beginning of life for us all. Just as the creator God forms the earth out of chaotic waters and shines light onto primeval darkness, so the resurrection of Christ pulls us from death through baptism into fruitful life with all the good earth and enlightens our life in Christ.
