Reflection for the Week- July 29th

We are in a triumphal procession and let’s be grateful for the polyvalence of the imagery. It stands for, I believe, both victory and humiliation, which are both part of the gospel mission and ministry. Humiliations can abound and result in rejection, yet God in Christ accepts us and this leads us on to victory.

Confidence without humility is arrogance. Humility without confidence is relativism.

Reflection for the Week-July 15th

The poetry of the Psalms is a lens through which we may see much of our lives. There are creational promises and covenant shattering. Light and darkness engage in warfare, and while darkness seems to pervade the landscape, God illuminates a path and the light is captured again. Oh Lord, keep us on the way to light.

Reflection for the Week- July 8th

Exodus remains a central and remarkable phase in the self-revelation of God and the life of God’s people. Living spirituality is never far from the double focus of this founding event: release and justice. Live in memory of the Exodus and apply its outcome to oneself and all of life.

Theology, as I see it, has a deep and living connection to spirituality. That is, theology and spirituality ultimately refer to God, are connected to our personal knowledge of God, and are essential to our being in community with God and his people. It is crucial to see the final orientation and practical application of theology as a challenge to live spiritually, not merely to inform accurately.
