Paralysis by Analysis

Lent 2013 Cover  I John 2:1-6

Question for reflection:
What is it that you are being called to do? What analysis is paralyzing you from doing it?

Prayer for the day:
Move in our midst, O God of freedom, strike from our feet the shackles that bind us. At times life can seem too complicated for the way you call us into. The values of peace, love, and transformation are just not realistic enough for ways of today. Break us free from this paralysis, embolden us to no longer fear the living of your way. Spur us onto the good path of living as Christlike witnesses in this complicated world.

~ Josh Brockway, Director for Spiritual Life and Discipleship
