challenges us -
To open our hearts to the miracle of new life
To the wonder of transcendence
To the beauty of transformation.
To not remain stranded in grief.
To arise from the ashes of defeat and disappointment.
invites us -
To allow Jesus, by his Spirit to do for us, through us and in us
More than we can ever ask or dream or imagine.
It invites us to love again after our love has been rejected.
It invites us to trust again after our trust has been betrayed.
It invites us to hope again after our hopes have been shattered.
It invites us to believe again after our faith has been shaken.
To see Divinity in the Ordinary
To see endings as new beginnings
To the freedom of non-clinging
To the awesome wonder of ourselves
To look beyond appearances
Like Mary of Magdala to call him ‘Master’
As Mary had believed
She now saw that which she believed
