passagePhrase : “Thus,” says our God: “In a time of favor, I answer you, on the day of salvation I help you; and I have kept you and given you as a covenant to the people, to restore the land and allot the desolate heritages, saying to the prisoners: ‘Come out!’”

Isaiah tells us that when the time is ripe, prisoners will be set free. We think of Bryan Stevenson and his work with the Equal Justice Initiative to represent people who have been illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in prison; or Brittany Barnett and her book, A Knock at Midnight, describing work to obtain clemency for those with unjust sentences. What beautiful ways to embody our community with all people and bring compassionate purpose to the place where truth and justice intersect. Compassion can inspire action to release physical chains, and it can also soften the chains of our minds. A story is told of a Tibetan monk, who upon his release from a Chinese prison, spoke of facing danger. “What danger?” asked the Dalai Lama? “Of losing compassion toward my jailers,” he replied. And what of the prisons in which we lock ourselves? What can you self-compassionately accept in yourself, paradoxically releasing its hold, tilling the soil for the day something new is ready to grow in you? This Lent, listen to your heart for the language of a wise and nurturing God to comfort and inspire you.
