Dust is transformed…

He is risen.  Christ conquers death again and again.  It is not a thing of the past.  It is the here and now.  It is the promise of a new world where the lion lies down with the lamb in peace. edward_hicks-peaceablekingdom

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust we are transformed by the Living Christ.

We are recreated by the Holy into new life.  But we have to know we are dust and be dust for this to happen.  Otherwise, our need to create our own identity will prevail.

I pray that living with the image of dust has been a blessing to you during Lent.  May you carry it with you knowing the Living Christ is always transforming you.
