The Pastor's Post
When you receive this newsletter, we will be well into the Season of Lent. On the first Sunday of Lent – February 18 – I preached on Genesis 9:8-17 and talked about the covenant that God established with Noah following the flood to never again destroy the world by water. This covenant was a formal and holy pledge, by the Almighty Creator to keep all of creation safe. This covenant provided a positive and sweeping promise of God’s steadfast and eternal love extending out of a very horrible disaster.
This passage also lifts up that God will use a bow as a sign of the covenant (the passage uses rainbow, but besides for this passage and one other in Ezekiel 1:28 the Hebrew word is just “bow” as in a bow used in battle). God says that God will remember the covenant whenever God sees the bow in the clouds. That will be God’s sign. I made the point that if God needs a reminder about the covenant, then chances are so do we. God’s sign is the bow; a former weapon of war. What’s your sign?
Lent is the period in the church year when we have the intentional opportunity to be thoughtful and introspective about our faith lives and the ongoing development of our faith. As we start this Season of Lent and begin our reflection on who we are as people of faith, it might be worthwhile to consider the question, what’s your sign? God has made the commitment to honor God’s covenant established with Noah and all his descendants and has gone so far as to recognize a sign that will remind God of that covenant. That’s good news. Now shouldn’t we do the same? Isn’t it appropriate to have sign reminding us how much God cares for us?
Some name the cross as their sign. Some talk of the beauty of nature. Those are good signs. What’s your sign? Maybe you don’t have one. That’s OK. Take time during this Season of Lent and reflect on the question, what’s my sign, and when you have a sign, use it to remember all God has done, is doing, and will do for us. Thanks be to God!
Continued blessings for your Lenten Journey,
