Season of the Soul: Lent 5

Lenten Theme:
What is a fool for Christ
Fool Prayer

by Beth McLean
inspired by the Ash Wednesday Liturgy
from A Prayer Book for Australia.

Lord, make me a ‘fool’ for you.
Creator, sustainer, nurturer,

show me how to care for the world in which I live,
how to encourage others.
How to be brave enough to stand up for what is needed …
give me the courage to be foolish enough,
passionate enough, excited enough
to care and show that care by action.
Transform me.
Isaiah 43: 16-21
Psalm 126
Philippians 3:3-14
John 12:1-8

To-day, To the Desert highlights the reading from Isaiah. In 2007, it is dear to Miss Eagle's heart. Each New Year, dear Reader, your Miss E seeks the Lord to provide her with a portion of Scripture to meditate on through the year. In this year of our Lord, 2007, Miss E was given in January this very passage of Isaiah. Over at Journey with Jesus, David Clendenin has taken this war passage from Isaiah to reflect on the fourth anniversary of the Iraq war which has blazed since 19 March 2003. David has given us the lives of four Christians on which to think in this context.
