The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore. ~Psalm 121:8
Today’s Holy Land pilgrims often depart via airplane. Imagine that we are boarding a plane together. We are flying east, toward the morning light. We feel time crumble beneath us, like a ridge of sand crumbles under bare toes. We pass through so many time zones that we are on the edge of a new day, one we have yet to live. It feels daring to be on this edge of newness.
What “edge” might you experience this Lent?
Prayer: O Creator, I trust you with my unlived days and minutes.
