Valentine’s Day… or Ash Wednesday?

I believe the journey itself is sacred. For me, faith is more about the pathway than the destination, more process than result. A pilgrim, then, is an honest struggler making his or her way along the journey that is life. For Lent, a pilgrim sets their heart on Jerusalem and the Cross, inviting the Risen Jesus to be a companion along the way.

Maybe our problem is that in order to believe in Jesus we have to stop believing in ourselves? Wasn’t that – isn’t that – the original sin? Believing in ourselves and walking right by the invitation Jesus so graciously extends?

Here is what God promises: “Whatever happens, I’m going to be with you, you can count on it” (Psalm 23 and Matthew 28). Jesus said, “For (God) gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike” (Matthew 5:45).

Texas will receive timely help from Washington, yes, but it won’t nearly scratch the surface of need. Churches, individuals, NGO’s (including Presbyterian Disaster Assistance), are already gearing up. Businesses from all over the USA will donate people and resources. But it still won’t cover all the need.
