In Remembrance of Me

"I am broken for a broken world / A world that needs your love / To be made whole again. / Take me into you and become my body. / Eat this bread. / Drink this wine. / Do this in re-membrance of me." - Lindsey Paris-Lopez

Let God (And People) Surprise You: An Advent Meditation

A priest's unexpected interpretation of a familiar text on the first Sunday of Advent took Lindsey Paris-Lopez by surprise, and helped her realize that we prepare room in our hearts for Jesus by opening up space for God and people to surprise us in moments of togetherness. "Maybe the Kingdom of God will be fully manifest and the world will be made new when we all cast off our judgment about where others have been or are going and focus on loving each other and cooperating together in the moment."

In Remembrance Of Me

I am this broken and bleeding world. / This bread is my broken body. / This cup is my spilled blood. / As it has been done to victims from the beginning of time / So it is done to me. / I give my broken self to you.
