“As we humbly allow the true love, that is Jesus Christ, to come into our hearts, in Selma, Alabama, in our nation, and in our world, we know our collective resurrection is coming.” ~Malika Sanders Fortier, Keep Watch with Me Lenten Reader

“How quickly we blame the victim of injustice, like the followers of Jesus in Luke 13:1-5. In telling them to ‘repent,’ literally to ‘turn,’ he is urging them to re-orient their way of seeing the world. … We, too, must recognize the lies that blame the victims of poverty, and ask the question, ‘Who is really responsible for this injustice? And how can we together build the power to change injustice?'” ~The Rev. John Cummings, Grace in Action, Detroit
Marked with the Cross of Christ…
You are invited at all times to share your feelings, memories or thoughts as you ponder being marked with the cross of Christ. On Saturdays, this is especially true. Saturdays, during Lent, will be a time for your input. Was there something that touched you during the week? Was there a word or phrase? Was there an image? Be part of the conversation today.
