Luci and Jordan continue their journey through the beginning of First Samuel
Day: April 23, 2017
By doubling down on trying to maintain what was familiar about the church and its mores, we may have poorly positioned ourselves to respond positively to what was happening in our parishes and neighborhoods. Inadvertently, in the press to respond to profound human suffering and changing circumstances which were often baffling, we all too often neglected the nurturing of disciples of Christ
How, then, to reconcile two social needs which seem at odds with each other: a longing for spaces for peace and reflection with the urgency of social justice issues? How can we create spaces for the former without sticking our heads in the sand and ignoring the latter?
Sitting on a wooden pew is fine. Safe. Elegant. But I want my heart to burn within me as I walk with new friends to nowhere in particular and yet arriving.
We have not yet broken the pattern of the tomb! How will we ever get free?
