Keeping it together through remembering…

02052011127When we engage the Lent season introspectively, we can quickly find ourselves confronted with our own inner chaos. The wind howls, the foundations shift and wild things bay at our feet. We wonder how we are going to keep it together for forty days.

Psalm 105:1-11 is given to us as today’s text as a kind of a handrail to keep us steady. It is a reminder of how the Hebrew people recounted and focused on their historic stories of salvation and promise. Followers of Christ, too, have a shared history of salvation and promise. Drawing on these in our desert times keeps focus on the path we are following.

The Psalm draws us to “to call, give thanks, sing, rejoice, tell, seek and remember” (Rev’d Peter Walker in With Love To The World)

Not really retired but reshaped and reshaping. Now a pilgrim at large ready to engage with what each day brings.
