It can be so easy to condemn, but you taught us to be better, to embrace each other.
Release the stones that our unworthy hands wish to cast,
that we might not be quick to judge, but rather eager to forgive.
We pray in your holy name,
Join Seeing the Word this Lenten season as we take a prayerful look into the ministry of Jesus Christ through the lens of The Saint John’s Bible. The weekly posts will feature either a prayer or reflection paired with an illumination. All content was written by Jessie Bazan, M.Div. candidate.
