It seems just right to me that Jane Shaw ends her reflections on a practical Christianity by speaking about both love and taking our faith out into the world just as we prepare to enter Holy Week. Just like with Ash Wednesday, the world will see what we do–and what we believe–from waving palm branches on the steps of our churches to linking arms with those who grieve during CROSSwalk to the most holy days of the Triduum. Jane’s words challenge me as I ponder if we prove by our actions–these actions–that the stranger is our family. Journeying through Holy Week how aware will we be that it is God’s love that ushers us from “dust to glory”? If a practical Christianity is about engaging the world we live in, what do you see as areas of challenge and hope as you enter these holy days?
