“Neither Do I Condemn You”
– John 8:11

This Sunday, marks the beginning of our last week of the Lenten season, leading us into the journey of Holy Week. It hardly seems that just a few short weeks ago, I began another annual Lenten journey – receiving the ashen mark of my faith on the forehead and deciding how I might personally mark this season of prayer, sacrifice and almsgiving.

Today’s Gospel passage from Matthew is one of those challenging ones that doesn’t always work out the way we want it. “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.” When I was a child I think I heard this as a way to try to get what I wanted, but I never did get that horse I asked for. (Well, except that old horse that my brother brought to the farm to retire. So, I guess I did…) So, what do we do with this reading? Do we believe it or not? Continue reading →
