WEEK 3 SHALOM
In this third week of Lent we focus on the aspect of Shalom most are not as familiar with, healing. As we continue our journey through these weeks may we continue to reflect on how we can accept this gift of shalom of justice, peace and wholeness and share it with the world. Daily scriptures for this week are Psalm 4:8, Romans 14:13-21, 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13, Luke 1:78-79, Proverbs 3:13-18, Psalm 39:7, John 15:13-17.
This week’s focus on shalom is on healing. It is likely you are not familiar with the aspect of shalom that can also mean wholeness. Before Jesus died and after He was resurrected, he offered and greeted his friends with “peace.” Jesus desired his friends to heal from their grieving and wholeness of their shattered dreams.
REFLECT-What healing are you in need of this Lent? What is missing that would bring wholeness to your life, to your community, to your neighborhood? Are you courageous enough to stand amidst the brokenness and make known to others this healing and wholeness?
