Daily Read for Lent - 14

Tuesday

  • Psalm 61; Psalm 62 (am)
  • Jere 2:1-13; Rom 1:16-25; John 4:43-54
  • Psalm 68


A few years ago we got a new liturgy for use in funerals in my church. Now we can choose from a wider rang of texts and prayers. One of the things I most appreciate is from the last Psalm in today's read. These words I say outside, close to the grave a short while before the coffin shall be put into the earth. For me it has a world of meaning:

Our God is a God who saves;
from the Sovereign LORD comes escape from death.
