BONUS BLOG: In the Face of Division and Difficulty

March 26, 2020

Don Saliers is a hero of mine. He was my faculty advisor at Candler (School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta) and later a mentor and friend. He wrote last week’s entries in The Upper Room’s Disciplines 2020 book. It’s my joy to share several lines he wrote there with you here —

In the face of division and difficulty, Ephesians contains the central message of the gospel for our Lenten journey.

— Uhm…does anybody remember Lent?

Seems like dealing with COVID-19’s preempted it, at least temporarily.

Back to what Don wrote about Ephesians —

It prays fervently for the unity of Christ’s body while it speaks to our deepest personal struggle and remind us of who we are in Christ: we are “live in love, as Christ loved us” (Eph. 5:2).

—  So.

What’s one thing you can do to restart your own Lenten journey and  “live in love, as Christ loved us” today and beyond?
