Lenten meditation for April 2, 2021

“And the Word became flesh, and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth.” ~  John 1:14  (NRSV)

Grace. Who can define it?
Is it forgiveness? Is it bad
memories wiped clean?
Is it a purifying water?
Is it seeing what is beautiful,
as if for the first time?
Is it love enduring without
any visible proof?

To make it right; to correct
a wrong; to be borne along in
confidence and hope.
To find safe passage through
To grow in strength and
To see life suffused with light.

Come, bright energies of peace.
Come, great longed-for Grace.
Join us now, join us all together.
