    It Is Finished (Rev. Dr. Debra Northern)

    It Is Finished (Rev. Dr. Debra Northern)

    "What we believe in our heart and have found consistent with God's will becomes the blueprint for serving: caring for those who are most vulnerable, feeding the hungry, housing the unsheltered, treating people with equity."

    What's So Maundy About Thursday? (Rev. Jim Keat)

    "Maundy Thursday is the context, the prologue for the events that are about to take place on the cross and at the tomb."

    Lament and Regret (Lee Sartain)

    Lament and Regret (Lee Sartain)

    Isaiah 43:16-21
    This is what God says,
    the God who builds a road right through the ocean,
    who carves a path through pounding waves,
    The God who summons horses and chariots and armies—
    they lie down and then can’t get up;
    they’re snuffed out like so many candles:
    “Forget about what’s happened;
    don’t keep going over old history.
    Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.
    It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?
    There it is! I’m making a road through the desert,
    rivers in the badlands.
    Wild animals will say ‘Thank you!’
    —the coyotes and the buzzards—
    Because I provided water in the desert,
    rivers through the sunbaked earth,
    Drinking water for the people I chose,
    the people I made especially for myself,
    a people custom-made to praise me.

    Palm Sunday (Fr. James Martin)

    Palm Sunday (Fr. James Martin)

    “When you are praying to Jesus you are praying to someone who understands you because he is human and has experienced all things."

    What difference does it make to know that Jesus understands your suffering?

    //

    Matthew 21:1-11
    When they had come near Jerusalem and had reached Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, just say this, ‘The Lord needs them.’ And he will send them immediately.” This took place to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet, saying,

    “Tell the daughter of Zion,
    Look, your king is coming to you,
    humble, and mounted on a donkey,
    and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”

    The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them; they brought the donkey and the colt, and put their cloaks on them, and he sat on them. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and that followed were shouting,

    “Hosanna to the Son of David!
    Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
    Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

    When he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was in turmoil, asking, “Who is this?” The crowds were saying, “This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth in Galilee.”

    Why Do We Cry? (Rev. Jim Keat)

    Why Do We Cry? (Rev. Jim Keat)

    "When we come together in the face of loss, when we discover empathy in the midst of grief, resurrection is possible, new life in the midst of what might feel like endless death."

    How have you experienced hope in the midst of grief?

Be still and go

I love it! Thank you

Wonderful meditations

I love this series. It gets me thinking a different way about the world - about the hidden meanings and beauty of daily experiences. I love catching up while I’m cleaning the house - it’s a great way to transform mundane activities into spiritual practices. Love the diverse voices featured too.

Excellent! Background music could be softer

I really enjoy the rich variety of voices, scriptures and perspectives. Listening to this has become an important Lenten practice for me. My only critique is that sometimes the background music can be a distraction to the words being said.
