Lenten Reflections

Go! for Lent: Isaiah 60:19-20

The sun shall no longer be your light by day nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you by night. Your sun shall no more go down, or your moon withdraw itself, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of mourning shall be ended.  ~Isaiah 60:19-20

Dare’s Beach, Maryland.

It’s dawn, and the moon has not yet set. Sun and moon share the sky. The locust tree stretches its branch toward the white wafer moon. I think of Eucharist.

With all creation, I yearn for union with the everlasting light---the true light that shall never go down---

the at-one-ment of Jesus Christ.


My heart yearns upwards

Seeking the white wafer moon

Holy Communion
