On this Holy Thursday, we look back at previous services at the Chapel of the Resurrection, when we celebrated the Lord's Supper and members of our community washed one another's feet.

Eternal God, in the sharing of a meal your Son established a new covenant for all people, and in the washing of feet he showed us the dignity of service. Grant that by the power of your Holy Spirit these signs of our life in faith may speak again to our hearts, feed our spirits, and refresh our bodies, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Spring Recess 2021 has begun at Valpo and so there is no Morning Prayer today.
A prayer for travelers:
Lord God our Father, you kept Abraham and Sarah in safety throughout the days of their pilgrimage, you led the children of Israel through the midst of the sea, and by a star you led the Wise Men to the infant Jesus. Protect and guide us now in this time as we set out to travel, make our ways safe and our homecomings joyful, and bring us at last to our heavenly home, where you dwell in glory with your Son and the Holy Spirit, God forever.

My alarm tells me it is time for Morning Prayer, but there is this 900 mile barrier. I will pause from my work and listen to appropriate music and spend 16 minutes working on the prayer shawl I keep in the office and think of all those who need my prayers.
Eighty years ago today Coventry--England--was heavily bombed destroying most of the city and its 14th century cathedral whose official name was the Cathedral of St. Michael. Hundreds of Coventry's citizens were killed and injured--Only the tower, spire, the outer wall and the bronze effigy and tomb of its first bishop, survived. In the days after the bombing two charred roof beams that had fallen in the shape of a cross were discovered by the cathedral stone mason. The Provost of the Cathedral had the words "Father Forgive" on the wall behind the altar. They were lashed together and put where the ruined altar stood. Another cross was fashioned out or the Medieval roof nails that had rained down as the cathedral was collapsing. The decision to rebuild the cathedral was taken the morning after its destruction. Rebuilding would not be an act of defiance, but rather a sign of faith, trust and hope for the future of the world. It was the vision of the Provost at the time, Richard Howard, which led the people of Coventry away from feelings of bitterness and hatred. This has led to the cathedral’s Ministry of Peace and Reconciliation, which has provided spiritual and practical support, in areas of conflict throughout the world. The Cross of Nails has become the symbol of Coventry’s ministry of reconciliation. I first learned of this history as a student at Valparaiso University. Valpo's Chapel of the Resurrection is part of a worldwide network of over 200 churches, charities, peace-building centers, and educational and training inspired by the Coventry story of destruction, rebuilding and renewal, and active in reconciliation in our own ways. organizations, inspired by the Coventry story of destruction, rebuilding and renewal, and active the work of reconciliation. As we walk through the difficult days ahead that we face as a nation let us ponder and act to reconcile our differences.
Reminded me of a place I know---
Valparaiso University Class of 1968--
Additional words not necessary---
ROGER WILBUR ANDERSON JR, 1LT - O2 - Army - Reserve 1st Cav Division (AMBL) His tour began on Oct 3, 1970. Casualty was on Dec 1, 1970 In PHUOC LONG, SOUTH VIETNAM He was a 1968 graduate of Valparaiso University. Remembering him this Veteran's Day.
For all the saints who inspired us and who we remember with thanksgiving....O.P. Kretzmann, Karl Lutze, Walt Keller,Walter Rast and many more whose voices echo in my mind when ever I have the privilege of being present in the Chapel----
Only 171 days until I get to visit and attend the Institute of Liturgical Studies!!!!!!
A wonderful page--check out a Reformation Minute #52--Luther on Vocation--the essence of "Passion with a Purpose".
