Meditation for Friday in the third week of Lent
Return, O Israel, to the Lord your God, for you have stumbled because of your iniquity. Hosea 14:1
Saving God, free us from hardness of heart, take from us all pride and pretension, strip us clean of all that makes us incapable of being witnesses of your gentle love. Make us worthy agents of your peace, so that even as we contend with one another the world may say, “But see how they love one another.” Amen.
