Lenten Meditations: March 18

“God is love and Jesus is in my heart.”

Confirmation statement by Emily Chandmuni Bains Seltz



Cognitive differences sometimes cause young people to focus on short basic truths. Esoteric rumination and deep philosophic themes mean little to them. But pure simple concrete words are understood by people with concrete levels of understanding. And though these folks might not enjoy a rousing intellectual discussion of some religious point, they do often clearly understand and can openly practice GOD IS LOVE. Each of God’s creations is a gift in some way and all are equally loved by God.


Dear loving Holy One, help me and others to be aware that your simple truths are as valuable as your more complex ones. Let us appreciate what we can learn from those whom you’ve created differently from us.
