Hello! In just ten days time we enter the final 100 day countdown. That's pretty wild to imagine - nice work everyone! Today we start to creep our way towards Jesus final days once more, featuring Jesus triumphant entry, some debates with the religious leaders, and his first suggestion of resurrection. (This is the story I mention in yesterday's reading.)
Scripture to Read
Questions to Consider
What does this teach me about Jesus?
What does this reveal was happening at the time that might have inspired these events?
What, if anything, feels applicable to today? What does it challenge me to do in response?
Praying the Hymns
Today we do not have a traditional hymn to sing but rather another written prayer in our hymnal. This one is about epiphany. I invite you to pray this prayer both in appreciation for the event in Jesus' life but also for hope that you too might experience an epiphany from God.
you made of one blood all nations, and, by a star in the East, revealed to all peoples him whose name is Emmanuel. Enable us who know your presence with uses to proclaim his unsearchable riches that all may come to his light and bow before the brightness of his rising, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, now and forever.
