Please pray particularly on Monday, which is not only the day when we commemorate the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., but is also Lobby Day at the State Capitol in the heart of Richmond. Thousands of people from across the Commonwealth and from states far away are expected to converge on the Capitol grounds to protest against gun control legislation that is before our General Assembly. In light of these challenging circumstances that bring immediately to mind the horrific events in Charlottesville almost two and a half years ago, we pray. We pray first and foremost for peace and for an end to violence.
Day: January 19, 2020
We look at the joy of beloved-ness in psalm 40, reflecting on our own experiences of God’s presence
St Afra and a prayer for conversion
Am I the only one who wonders why Jesus is so rarely pictured as smiling? God-the-Father is rarely depicted in art. I believe it has to do with graven image cosmic copyright or something. But when God is depicted in art – also no smile. It just makes me curious, is all.
“Come and see,” Jesus tells his soon-to-be disciples when they ask him where he is staying. And this seems to me to be the best, short response to any theological question. Who is God? Who is the Christ? Come and see.
