Every instant, God is loving us

The Peace Pulpit: As we enter into these final two weeks of Lent, we must begin to try to deepen that awareness of how God loves us as we contemplate how Jesus goes through his sufferings and death.


God can't wait to forgive, to reconcile and welcome us home

The Peace Pulpit: God is always loving us. That's a truth that we need to try to let sink deeply into our awareness. We can't merit the love of God; it is a gift.


'God is waiting to be gracious to them'

The Peace Pulpit: During this season of Lent, we might have a sense of how God is calling us to reform our lives in whatever way we need to, to come to God for healing and forgiveness knowing with great confidence that God is simply waiting to be gracious.


'This is my beloved, listen to him'

The Peace Pulpit: This is what we must try to do now during this season of Lent — listen deeply, intently to the Word of God. Isn't it true we need this message more than ever because there is so much violence, such a spirit of hatred in our world.
