Let's turn this thing around.
Have you ever had one of those days, or weeks, where you wish you could just stop for a complete re-do? What is it about hindsight, that it is only AFTER the fact that we turn around and look behind us and think about how what you really need to do is turn completely around and do it all differently. These moments are usually accompanied by regret. By the time we stop and rethink what we are doing, things have generally gotten really hard or out of hand. And sometimes we are not at all sure what we should be doing, but we are absolutely getting the sense that it is not this.
These next few weeks and up to Easter we are in the church season called Lent. During these weeks, we will be exploring the stories in the bible that show an instance when things could have gone better. We will talk about the possibility that we are offered to make real change in our lives and in our world. We CAN change:
from injustice to justice
from hostility to hospitality
from unforgiveness to forgiveness
from foolishness to wisdom
from greed to generosity
