The verdict is this: The Light has come into the world (John 3). Today, we learn all about how how God comes to us through the simplest and ordinary stuff: seeds, light, bread. We just need to have our eyes open to see it, or need to be on some googles that change our perspective. Today we also learn a new song “All God’s Creatures Have a Space in the Choir” and a prayer you can sing as before mealtime.
In our Opening Prayer (BCP, 216) we learn that Jesus is the bread of life. What does that mean? Where have you seen bread in church and what does it mean for us? Today we learn that God can be found everywhere in the world–from plants, to seeds, to bread, to light. Our path as Christians is to look for these things and to delight in them. We also learn a new song “Seek Ye First” and a fun prayer you can sing as a family at meal time.
In Chapel today we learned that we can see and experience God in some of the ordinary parts of our days: plants that grow, bread that rises, light that shines. Put your “God Goggles” on this week and see where you find God in the natural world today. Maybe in the baby plant you got at the lenten drive-thru, or maybe in baking some lenten pretzels (follow recipe here), or signs of spring outdoors.
