Getting ready for Lent: Living Wholehearted

From the daily email, Brother, Give us a word (SSJE), the word for today: 

It’s no wonder that Jesus’ family was concerned about him. By his actions he was showing that principles which most people value above everything else – security, safety, and a good reputation in the eyes of others – meant nothing to him. How counter-cultural is that?

-Br. David Vryhof

What I’m learning this week are other words for counter-cultural–like whole-hearted;  as from the words of our confession when we pray, we have not loved you with our whole heart.  

I am praying this week to be open hearted in order that I may truly live whole heartedly. We’re learning this is about being vulnerable, being courageous, taking risks, and accepting and expecting the possibility of failure. 

Show up.   Be seen.  Live brave.
