Faces of Faith this week: Anna
Ending at the Beginning. People always seem interested in knowing how things will end, as if somehow knowing when we would die would change how we live. Our face of faith is Anna who, along with Simeon, sees in the infant Jesus his entire future. All the glory and all the pain. Perhaps it does change how He lives His life? And though we don't get to know when we will die, we know that we will. Can that be enough to call us to live more fully in Christ?
Holy and Mighty God, we know that all things are in Your care. You call us to trust and live fully following in the footsteps of Your Son, Jesus, in whose name we pray. Amen.
