Lenten reflections

From a sermon by Rev. Dr. Peg Schultz-Akerson, preached Ash Wednesday 2004:
The biggest tragedy they say isn't that we're going to die. The bigger tragedy is that of never fully living. Fully living in the midst of a broken world isn't possible unless we get beyond fear of the brokenness. If we're afraid the brokenness has the final word we'll be afraid to fully live. To trust that God, who raised Jesus from the dead, will keep such surprises coming is to live by faith rather than by fear.
