Pastor Tiffany Hollums decided that each day during Lent, she would choose a word to prayerfully reflect upon. A volunteer suggested reading the lectionary texts and then choosing a word that stood out to her from those passages. Tiffany is sharing her Lenten reflections here and hopes to inspire our readers to join in her journey.
One. In Christ, we become one. It is a mystery and beautiful that through Christ, the many are made into One. Maybe because it is such a mystery, we tend to repeatedly forget and think we can do things in our own….but that is a mistake. Sure, we probably could succeed, for a bit….but the miraculous part of it is missed because something truly stunning happens when many join to be One. And we cannot be One without Christ. It is a mystery. It is beautiful.
