Firth Sunday of Lent
My journey is nearing its end. Youíve walked with me. Together we have tried to touch peopleís lives, to show them compassion, to let them know that there is more to life than the vagaries of the present moment, that there is an eternity. Iíve tried to show you and all we have met along the way that the present moment in life matters, that all of lifeís experiences are valid and meaningful, that all we see and hear and touch and feel are stepping stones along the way to going home to our father.
Iíve offered forgiveness to all those that everyone was ready to condemn, and to you when you needed it. Iíve offered hope in the midst of despair, life in the midst of death. I raised my friend Lazarus, but only to show all of my brothers and sisters that death and loss and sorrow are never the end of the story, the end of the journey. I told you that unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat, but if it dies, it grows up and produces much fruit. Thatís how our lives should be, dying to ourselves for the sake of others. That is the journey we have been traveling.
Do you believe your life has meaning, that every joy and every sorrow, that every success and every failure, that every good deed and sinful action has shaped you and opened you to your brothers and sisters, enabled you to understand and share in their joys and sorrows, successes and failures, good and evil? Have you come to believe that itís not the results but the journey itself that matters? Iím almost there.
Will you continue to walk with me?
