Cross-wise

by Barbara Rupholdt

From http://www.lhm.org/dailydevotions/default.asp?date=20160327 Read Luke 24:1-35. It is Sunday afternoon. Two grieving disciples are leaving Jerusalem and slowly making their way home. Along the way they talk about recent events. In time a stranger joins them in their travels, a stranger who is oddly unaware of the recent happenings in Jerusalem. They tell him about Jesus, […]

Scripture readings

by Barbara Rupholdt

Hopefully, you have read John 3 and, perhaps, the rest of John. For Maundy (command) Thursday events, read Luke 22:7-38 along with John 13 through 17. Continue on into John 18 and 19 for Jesus’ arrest, trials, crucifixion and burial. Then we wait until Sunday for the rest of the story…

Day 8/Gift 8

by Barbara Rupholdt

What’s the point! Tonight’s gift, one Bible verse, is deceptively brief, but utterly profound and quite the reality to ponder. Because, remember, none of this is theorizing: we are living through 40 very real days … the 40 days force us to slow down and ponder the ramifications of Ash Wednesday; the ramifications that we […]

Day 7/Gift 7

by Barbara Rupholdt

Isle of ewe: because ewe matters! One badddddd pun, I know. My point? Notice how one tiny play on words can re-frame your perspective – and after that, you never see life the same way again. So: brainstorm with me. I’m I’m going to play with one winkydinky. ….but the result will be no game. […]
