Descending Like a Dove

Category : Lent

A Lenten Devotional

This year’s Lenten devotional at HUCC, “For the Beauty of the Earth” by Leah Schade, has begun a new section focused on celebrating animals and birds. Thursday’s reading is from the relationship of Jesus with John the Baptist:

“The next day, John saw Jesus coming toward him and declared, ‘Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world … I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him. I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water said to me, “He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.” And I myself have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God.'” (John 1:29-34) (page 33)

What word or phrase stands out to you in this reading? Close your eyes and repeat it silently. Allow God to speak to the deep concerns of your heart through this phrase. What is coming up for you? Tell God about it.If you didn’t pick up a copy of the Lenten devotional at church, let us know and we can mail one to your home. May the peace of Christ be with you. Love and peace,

Pastors Marijke and Chelsea
