An excerpt from 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 (NRSV):
Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.
Reflection from Sharon Henley-Gramer:
I remember when I gave birth to my first child and I shared the “wonder” with a parishioner who already gave birth many times over. I couldn’t believe that something so precious starts with just a “seed.” I truly believe that we are all born with a gift, and it is God’s spirit. We are all born good, and we learn evil. God’s temple is in all of us and we can contain it or share it. It is so exciting when we share our gifts. Maybe during this time of Lent, share God’s spirit with another through kindness and forgiveness.

For further study and prayer, the readings assigned for today are:
Psalm 84; 1 Kings 6:1-4, 21-22; 1 Corinthians 3:10-23
from the Faure Requiem
“May the angels lead you into paradise;
May the martyrs receive you at your arrival
And lead you to the holy city Jerusalem.
May choirs of angels receive you
And with Lazarus, once a poor man,
May you have eternal rest.”
