Making the Road: Walking through Lent (Wednesday, April 6, Luke 21:20-28)

Have you ever considered a posture for hope? Aligning your body to
better receive what Jesus offers? A yoga teacher taught me the benefit
of mountain pose with a clarifying example. She stood “normally”:
slouched, her weight unbalanced. She asked a student to press down
on her shoulders. Our class watched as her body crumpled under
the slightest pressure of the student’s hand. Then she stood tall, feet
balanced, shoulders squared, chin raised, and the student applied
pressure again. This time, our teacher stood strong. Friends, stand up
and raise your heads, because our redemption is drawing near.

Jesus, you are our strength within and without. In the midst
of destruction and despair, help us to stand tall in a posture of
hope. Amen
