Look on Zion, the city of our appointed festivals! Your eyes will see Jerusalem, a quiet habitation, an immovable tent. ~Isaiah 33:20
Every pilgrim longs to glimpse Jerusalem. The bus takes us to a vantage point called Mount Scopus. We shade our eyes against the glare of the sun. The ancient walls still stand, encasing the Old City within the sprawl of a modern city. The golden Dome of the Rock, a Muslim holy site, sparkles.
During this Lent, how might you open your eyes to see the beauty, pageantry and history of your faith? Of other faiths?
Prayer: O Creator, let me glimpse your home.
