Facing the Church

Tap here for a video meditation
on Psalm 138.

 Muslims pause five times each day to pray. They face the great mosque in Mecca. Jewish synagogues face Jerusalem. The physical turning of the body toward these holy places elevates awareness that only God is center of life. There is a tradition of churches facing east, place of sunrise and symbol of the resurrection of Jesus.

Face the direction of your church. How does this feel? Sense the gentle tension in the sacred thread that joins you and your community to that place in your life. Let this be a symbol of your facing the Lord who is more powerful than whatever else you are “facing” in life.

David prays in the last verse similar to Paul: “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Phil 1:6).
