Surely the Lord is in this place
A reflection for Lent: The promised presence | Jill Duffield
Siblings in Christ, While we are not where we had hoped to be by Lent 2021, we trust that God is nonetheless with us exactly where we are. The theme for this year, “Surely the Lord is in THIS place,” is taken from Genesis 28:16. Jacob wakes from his dream, having had the vision of the ladder and received God’s promise, and says, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was unaware of it.” Often God is present and speaking but we are oblivious to these holy manifestations. This Lent we invite you to be open to the divine wherever you find yourself.
