As I write this devotion in late July, the temperature has been in the low 30s. If Wiarton Willie and Shubenacadie Sam were to appear, I would say, “Bring on the snow!” February 2 is about more than groundhogs and winter. Whether we call it the Presentation of the Lord or Candlemas, our focus is on Mary and Joseph as they bring Jesus to the temple and encounter two elderly people.
Freeing God, show us how to live for our neighbours. Amen. — VSR
