Lent is the time of "covenant review", raising the question of how each party has kept their end of the promise. Has God upheld God's end of the promise to always love us and be with us? Have we kept our end of the promise to follow and serve?
Because nothing that Peter and his friends do or see or hear or say makes any sense.
especially for 21st century sophisticates such as ourselves: What do we make of miracles? And what is the deal with all those dang demons?? Also, why should we even bother to care about such things nowadays??
We are invited to go "behind the scenes" to view the power and authority of God through Jesus Christ in a way that shows us love, grace and hope as the true meaning and view of what "power" and "authority" really are.
How would you respond to the invitation to leave your life's work to go on a journey that you had no details about? A "new" adventure into unknown territory?
Imagine the work toward equal justice that could become reality if we all listened to and acknowledged God's call to us and begin to act on the revelation of Jesus Christ in our midst?!!
how do we turn anger into relationship building, how do we turn hatred into love, how do we turn fear into hope, how do we turn grief into joy, how do we turn oppression into justice, how do we turn violence into peace?”
As we look forward to 2021 let us not forget the blessings of strengthened relationships, new partnerships and discoveries, and the advanced learnings of all forms of technology!!!!
This Christmas day we remember and celebrate God’s ultimate act of love and solidarity with us
Let us welcome the Christ-child once again.
