April 12th, Saturday Fifth Week of Lent

Join the Stream

“They shall come streaming to the Lord’s blessings.”  Jeremiah 31:12

lent3Recently I attended a cooking demo that ended with a lot of freebies. When the chef had finished cooking, all the people streamed down from the amphitheater style seating toward the sample table to receive their mini turkey burger with gouda. Then they streamed to the herb station where they were invited to pot up a tiny sweet marjoram plant. Finally, they all streamed over to the exit where they were handed a sturdy tote bag containing a foodie magazine, exciting new recipes and coupons.

People love free stuff! This Sunday watch the people streaming into church from their various neighborhoods, gathering to break open the Scriptures, then streaming up to Holy Communion to receive food for their journey. At dismissal time they stream out of the church to take the gospel into their everyday lives: the living Word, the bread of life, grace and blessings. Join the stream of disciples!

O Lord, let me not pass up a blessing today. I want to be your disciple and join the stream of your followers.

Read: Ezekiel 37: 21-28, Jeremiah 31: 10-13, John 11: 45-56
