Ash Wednesday - February 14

Will you walk with me on my journey? I began it long ago on the banks of the Jordan River. At the river, John called people to change because the Kingdom of God was near. He didnít know how right he was. The Kingdom of God was more than near; it was in the very hearts of the people to whom I had come.

And so I set out. All along the way, I met the poor and sick, the powerless and abused and I tried to ease their hurts, comfort them and meet their needs. That is what the Kingdom of God is Ė people showing others that God is involved and that he cares. The people looked on me as a teacher, as a miracle worker, as a prophet sent by God. Maybe I was. All I really know is that my journey took me to people and together with the people I met along the way I tried to see and show the presence of my Father.

Along the way, I saw suffering and began to hope that things could be different, that people could change. People donít like to change, especially those who live in comfort and could really make things better for those who suffer. They hated me for what I said and did. They were afraid of losing what was safe and familiar and comfortable for them. They were afraid of losing themselves. And in their fear, they crucified me.

But Iím not gone. The Kingdom is not an empty dream. The Kingdom is here and I continue on my journey. You can see me in the face of the teacher preparing young people to live full and rewarding lives, in the doctor who shows compassion for the sick, in the social worker who fights against family violence and abuse, in the lawyer defending the rights of those who seem most powerless, in all the people who simply care.

Will you walk with me on my journey? I canít promise you comfort or peace. The complacent of your world will despise what you say and do as much as the complacent of my world hated me. But the Kingdom is growing. Justice and peace are possible. And if you care, really care for your fellow human beings, others we meet along the way will see my face in you, too.

Will you walk with me?
