Watch & Pray Lent Reflection

Isaiah 11.6. The wolf shall live with the lamb,
the leopard shall lie down with the kid,
the calf and the lion and the fatling together,
and a little child shall lead them.

Isaiah’s vision of the peaceable kingdom is perhaps one of the most hopeful parts of the Bible. Such passages remind us that God’s endgame is peace across a violent and fractured world. Even the predator and prey lie down together in peace.

This year’s Church of England Lent resource embraces Black Spirituality, which insists that regardless of the harsh conditions of life, union and communion have the last word. Peace and healing lie deeper than pain and suffering. There will be a reconciliation of all things, and all time, in God. And, finally, all shall be well in the end.
