Mother Teresa is quoted as saying, “I’m a little pencil in the hands of a writing God who is sending love letters to the world.”
Pastor Eric suggested that perhaps rather than a pencil, we are crayons in God’s hands. Sometimes whole, sometimes broken, always a community of many colors.
Our scripture readings for this second Sunday in Lent remind us that a person comes into a right relationship with God not through works of the law but through faith. The “way” is given to us freely; God’s grace is available right now. All we need to do is “take up the cross”, meaning to acknowledge that we will be resurrected upon death, as Jesus was. And in the meantime, we are called to spread the love of God to others…through love letters written in colors.
