Lent 2017, day 36

“The Psalmist [Psalm 146] gives an image of the God in whom we place our trust and hope: Liberator of Prisoners, Lover of Justice and Righteousness, Caregiver for Orphans and Strangers. What do you think it means for us to place our hope in the Holy One?”

Lenten Reflections on the Confession of Belhar

This Lenten season I am using a new resource to explore the Belhar Confession: Lenten Reflections on the Confession of Belhar, edited by Kerri N. Allen and Donald K. McKim. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), in which I serve as a teaching elder (pastor), added the Confession of Belhar to our Book of Confessions in 2016. This confession came from the Dutch Reformed Mission Church during its historic struggle against apartheid in South Africa.

See you along the Trail.
