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.
1 Kings 17:17-24
God brings the dead to life. In theory, it sounds simple, but anyone who has stood at the grave of a loved one or cried tears of grief hears these words with fresh eyes: God raises the dead! This changes everything. What is dead-can be alive. What we thought was hopeless, can now hold promise. Lent leads from despair to joy…. from dead to alive.
