A thought-provoking reflection from the Forward Movement Press

Dear friends in Christ,
Sometimes it seems that our world is spinning out of control. Whatever your political persuasion or nationality, we can all agree that conflict is on the rise. Those of us on social media might feel that we’re witnessing daily stress and angst increase by the minute. And the nonstop pulse of news cycles leaves us breathless, with little room for contemplation.
 
When something terrible happens in our world, we often hear a response of “thoughts and prayers.” This inevitably leads to a conversation about whether prayer is enough. I’d like to suggest that prayer and contemplation are essential, but that when we pray fervently, we’ll often be led to other kinds of actions. The key is making space for prayer in the first place, something increasingly difficult in the chaos of the present time.
 
Habits of daily prayer and reflection are absolutely essential for followers of Jesus. The harder this seems for us, the more important it is. Prayer is our anchor. Prayer is the thing that keeps us grounded and focused.
 
Praying for our enemies will help us to follow Jesus’ commandment to love them. Praying for a decrease in violence will push us to work for peace. Praying for God’s strength when we are afraid will help us live as Jesus told us when he said again and again, “Be not afraid.”
 
It’s just a month until Lent, thanks be to God. Soon enough we’ll be in the midst of a whole season devoted to helping us follow Jesus every day. I hope you’ll find ways, during Lent or before, to join me in focusing on our lives of daily prayer.
 
Yours faithfully,

May we suggest a movie?

 

I went and saw the movie Hidden Figures this past Monday evening.  I found it powerful and moving.  Not because it was subtle: it wasn’t.  Its power came from the way it helped me relive some of my own history, and the history of our country, in a new way.  It helped me see things differently.

Given the fact that we follow One who was continually calling us to “see”, and who spent much time “opening the eyes of the blind”, I think Hidden Figures is a gem all of us might appreciate.

The movie won’t be in theaters much longer, so, if you want to go, go soon.  Children will appreciate it as much as adults.

Calvary is planning on holding a discussion of the movie for those who have seen it, and would like a chance to talk about it.  Stay tuned for more information!

Blessings.
