Gnaw On This: The Fourth Sunday in Lent

by Mike Kinman, Rector of All Saints Church, Pasadena

The gospel isn’t meant to be gulped down on Sunday morning, but gnawed on through the week so it really becomes a part of us. You’ve got to work at it, like a dog with a good bone! Here’s the Gospel for this coming Sunday — the Fourth Sunday in Lent — with some notes and more “food for thought” on miracles, revelation and the immutable law of love. Gnaw away!

Lenten Meditation: Day Fifteen

Lessons from Joseph

The Old Testament lesson for this Friday in the second week of Lent is found in the book of Genesis and may be very familiar to many of you. It’s the beginning of the story of Joseph, his father and his brothers and tells how Joseph ends up in a pit because of jealousy, insecurity and hatred.

Lenten Meditation: Day Fourteen

I’ve always been much more of a Advent/Christmas Christian than a Lent/ Easter one. The waiting in the darkness of Advent, the Incarnation – God breaking into the universe – what a trip! The whole lent/Easter thing: much harder for me. For most of my life, all it took was for me to hear “take up your cross,” and I’m heading for the hills. I don’t want to be weighed down with suffering and sorrow, I don’t like to think of Jesus that way either.

Every day our attention is moved and manipulated by the world around us and the world inside us. In a season of self-reflection we ask ourselves to examine the truths that we lean onto on a daily basis.

Lenten Meditation: Day Twelve

Like as the hart desireth the waterbrooks, so longeth my soul after thee, O God.
My soul is athirst for God, yea, even for the living God.
When shall I come to appear before the presence of God?
My tears have been my meat day and night, while they daily say unto me:
“Where is now thy God?

Lenten Meditation: Day Eleven

Sometimes in my life, a phrase or image or prayer is echoed around me in unexpected ways. And sometimes, like in this prayer of St. Teresa, it is like manna for the journey. I was first introduced to this prayer through the beautiful Taize service held each month in our community.
