Reflection for the Week- January 28th

Nature is related to and distinct from its Creator. In the emerging creation, the Creator is involved in, but not entrapped by the natural world. Idolatry flourishes in the confusion. Yet, God and nature are not one and the same. This truth is crucial for Christian spirituality, for what we worship is not nature, but the Creator.

Reflection for the Week- January 21st

We can never begin with Suspicion as it always takes place in the preceding first order discourse of Trust. There is no way to escape the priority of Trust. We all Trust first because that’s the way we’re made as God’s images. One of our major problems though is that we trust the wrong things, but in God’s mercy and grace this can change as we learn to put our Trust in God.

Reflection for the Week- January 14th

Seriously consider your worldview. How does it correspond to being a human being in the world? The Christian worldview, as no other, gives us the necessary truth about reality and ourselves. Here, we have a true fit that is sufficient and can be lived, yet is careful not to claim to be exhaustive.

Reflection for the Week- January 7th

May our desire for God’s substantial healing be greater than our fear of failure. Let’s live in the hope of Christ’s second coming and not be presently defeated by that which seems insurmountable.
