Daily Lectionary Readings for Year A
Atmosphere affects the way we experience scripture. It is dark this morning. The rain is coming down. There are rumblings of thunder in the air. To read of Noah building a boat as it starts to sprinkle, or of Paul being tossed to and fro on a ship in a storm, I feel connected to the lectionary. And I ponder the storms in my life. I think about what we are experiencing that make us feel as though our lives are in peril. How do you respond when life doesn't feel safe? Where do you feel God’s presence in the midst of a storm? When you have little or no control over what may happen next and are subject to the powerful forces of nature, a virus or a flood, where do you find your bearings? May God speak to you as you read in the rain.
