Delicious, Nutritious, and Fun! The independent living residents at The Lutheran Home at Hollidaysburg spent an afternoon participating in the BeWell Kitchen presented by Cura Hospitality.

Nice activity for the independent living residents.

As we travel through the Lenten season, we offer this weekly reflection as food for the journey.

The First Sunday of Lent, February 18
Mark 1:9-15

In times of life when we feel like we are walking in ankle deep mud, those are the times when we need to feel the love of God, to receive affirmation and reassurance from others, and to pray. Jesus, in his humanity, also seemed to need affirmation and reassurance at times, starting at the beginning of his undertaking the heavy responsibility of the salvation of the world.

In Mark’s account, God addresses Jesus with visual and spoken expressions of affirmation and support: he saw the heavens ripped open and the Spirit descend as a dove; and heard, “You are my son, the beloved; with you I am delighted.” Such visions and words of assurance, belonging and love are the kind that seep into your bones—to be drawn on for strength and peace, especially when life is anything but peaceful.

In our baptism we are reminded that like Jesus, we are beloved children of God. We are gifted with the Spirit who enables visual and spoken expressions of belonging, love and reassurance found in holy baptism, in holy communion, in Scripture, and within the community of faith to seep deep into our bones—even when the words and promises of God may sometimes feel untrue.

We know from the gospels, Jesus took time alone to pray, especially when feeling overwhelmed or depleted. Prayer can be a lifeline for us and can take many forms: alone or in a group, silent or aloud, with or without words, calm or frantic, at set times or fluid … God is always ready and willing to listen and to respond with grace and mercy.

May the Lord our God, send you the expressions of belonging, love and reassurance you need this day. Amen.

Prayer: O Holy Spirit, come. Keep us ever mindful that the all encompassing, compassionate love of God in Jesus is always with us. Help us to affirm and encourage each other in Jesus’ name. Amen.
