Lenten Reflections on Scripture — Red Underwear

Apologies that I sent out two prayers on one day yesterday … guess it sent me reflectively scurrying …

Matthew 6: 16
“And whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corner so that they may be seen by others …

but rather be like my friend from China
whose deep-tested faith
just lights her eye
and who wears red underwear
on this Chinese New Year
for the profound secret of her joy.
