Today's scripture reading in our Lenten devotional booklet seems very appropriate for today: "For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known." (1 Corinthians 13:12) It definitely feels like we are in a time when we "know only in part"--and when we long for the time when we will see and understand and know more fully. But as the scripture says, this much is certain: we are fully known. Whatever is visible dimly for us is fully visible to God. How are you feeling with so much being unknown right now? Where have you sensed, nevertheless, being "known" by God in these days? Will you pray with me the prayer from our devotional booklet? "God of mercy, help us to see ourselves completely. Strengthen us for the long night of work ahead. Forgive us for the times we fail to embody your ministry of justice and welcome. Assure us of your unending love, expressed through your presence with us in the person of Jesus, in whose name we pray. Amen."
