Lenten Meditation
SHARING WHO WE ARE
SHARING NEW LIFE

Are the followers of Jesus Christ an “other worldly” group? No, and yes! If, by “other worldly” we
mean being off in some dream world, the answer is definitely “No!” As Jesus and his disciples
went about their ministry, we know that they confronted issues of life and death, illness and
loss. They faced the hoslity of the entrenched establishment. On the other hand, if, by “other
worldly” we mean having a vision of a beer, more open, more just world, then, the answer is
“Yes!”

The message of Easter is not denial that the crucifixion happened; it is, rather, an assurance that
there is a hope that takes us beyond sorrow and loss. Life and the goodness and premise of life

LENTEN MEDITATION
can be restored. When a person who has had a serious injury or gone through a long me of
illness finally comes back to healthy living again, life seems all the more precious. Resurrecon
people are recovery people. We have known life’s problems, but we have discovered that with
God’s help, we can move beyond them.

As we share who we are, this is a valuable truth to remember. When we talk with others, it is
important to be whole people, human beings who have suffered and rejoiced, plodded and
danced, mourned and shouted for joy. We have discovered that there is a resurrecng spirit
that lis us up, when we have known the depths of despair. There is a God who heals and
restores.

Today, we celebrate the sharing of new life, recovered life, life that has a touch of the eternal.
We may not walk along the road to Emmaus as the disciples did, but along the roads that we
do walk today, we may experience God’s presence in a special, inmate way. Then, we share
our experience with others that they, too, may find recovery and new hope. Other worldly?
Yes, Easter calls us to something beyond this present existence, this present life. Jesus lives and
walks among us. Ahead lies a far beer world, as God’s gi.

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be at your back.

May the sunlight of Jesus Christ grace your cheek,


And may rain gently fall upon your field.

May God keep you in the hollow


of God’s Hand unl we meet again.

Go in peace.
