Release the Pain

by Beth A Richardson on March 2, 2017


| We want to hear from you |

Thursday, March 2. Read Psalm 32. This psalm is a lament for the suffering that happens when we try to cover up our sin. What pain or shame do you need to release to God’s mercy?

Share your reflection.

Words from the Word: Happy are those whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
– Psalm 32:1, NRSV

Lectionary Texts:

Audio Lectio: Pray the scripture using audio lectio from Matthew 4:1-11.

Spiritual Tools: As we begin Lent, practice your faith by joining in an Ash Wednesday service. Read the prayer for Ash Wednesday.
