LJ2021 – Day 6 – In Between

Welcome to the the Lenten Journey 2021:
Faith in a Post Pandemic World
by Fr. Vazken Movsesian



The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” – Jesus (John 3:8)
Day 6: In Between
Not long ago we could see, either with our eyes or with our minds’ eye, the connection between two telephones. A chord came out of the telephone we talked into, and a chord went into the telephone of the person to whom we were talking. And even if we didn’t understand the technology, we knew that there were solid wires connecting those phones, whether those phones were next door to each other, across town or across the country. Today, we pick up a cell phone and talk to another person somewhere else on this planet. There are no wires in between those two phones. We talk and we hear without knowing what’s in between, but we’re certain there is something that is carrying those sound waves between those two phones. We talk and we hear God, without seeing what’s in between us, but we know there has to be something connecting us. Look for the connections – a good work or deed, a mother’s prayer over us, a tear from our eyes signaling our compassion. It is the Spirit at work.
