LENT AT CAIRN
Hineni (“he-NAY-nee”) is the Hebrew word meaning “Here I am.”
In Isaiah 52:6, God says, “Therefore, My people will know My name. Therefore, in that day I am the one who is speaking, ‘(Hineni) Here I am.’” (NAS) As we have been reminded throughout Epiphany, God is among us.
And in Isaiah 6:8: Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “(Hineni) Here am I, Send me!” During Lent, we will be reminded that God is also asking us to respond to God’s love in our world.
In a time when anti-Semitic graffiti are scrawled in public places … Hineni
In a time when Muslim mosques are burned to the ground … Hineni
In a time when Mexican Americans and their religion are being vilified … Hineni
In such a time as this, Here I Am, Send me!
