Reflection for the Week- February 25th

To live a spirituality of the cross of Christ is to participate in the drama of God’s salvation. Let’s follow in the footsteps of the crucified and risen One, be focused on the Scripture, and open to the Spirit as we are shaped by the dialogue of our community with God, each other, and the world. In the light of the power at work within us and our destiny to image Christ, may we rejoice and be thankful for this day.

Reflection for the Week- February 18th

Many forms of postmodernism today are really an expression of modernism. Extremes reign. Some modernists suppose that Reason is the light that will explain everything, while some postmodernists argue it explains nothing. Christianity offers us a third way that is not restricted to these types of polarization. There is a place for reason in the Christian faith, but neither reason nor faith is able to give us all the answers to life’s mysteries.

Reflection for the Week- February 11th

True spirituality is living spirituality. Living spirituality is both adjective and verb. That is, this spirituality is living in that it originates in the living God, and then comes to us through creation, Scripture, Christ, and Spirit. It is also to be lived because it offers us the only way to life in the midst of the pandemic of death.

Reflection for the Week- February 4th

Having our life story re-narrated from a redemptive perspective won’t make the sordid past go away, but it will provide us with a new way of looking at it and its capacity to negatively impact the present. Redeeming memories, through Christ and the power of the Spirit, is one of the ways we are brought into community with the God who lives. And in this community we are sheltered, comforted and loved so that we in turn might shelter, comfort and love others.
