Monday, March 16: Keep Being the Church

“Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in.”  Galatians 6:9

It is easy to become discouraged during the strange times in which we live. The onset of the Coronavirus threat has reminded us of our vulnerability, and we must be diligent in seeking creative ways to remain in community with one another, to love our neighbor, and to be the church. In this time of required social distancing, write down practical ways we can still reach out and show love to those around us.  Then do it!

Meditation for March 16, 2020

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35

A common practice for reflecting on Scripture: 

Lectio Divina (Latin for “Divine Reading”) is a traditional monastic practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of God’s word. It does not treat scripture as texts to be studied, but as the living word.
Traditionally, Lectio Divina has four separate steps: read; meditate; pray; contemplate. First a passage of scripture is read, then its meaning is reflected upon. This is followed by prayer and contemplation on the Word of God.
