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
pain.
To grow in strength and
understanding.
To see life suffused with light.

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