Is anything more meditative than standing at the edge of the mighty ocean to absorb its ageless, limitless expanse? To imagine that it has never looked exactly as it does at this moment, but will look just the same to wondering eyes a hundred generations from now?
The ocean is fresh and timeless like our mysterious God. I invite you to spend a couple of minutes at the seaside with me pondering the words of Moses to his people as they end their desert trek and begin a journey into the unknown of the promised land. I hope it gives a good start to your Lent!
