Reflection for the Week- December 15th 2008

Breaking through the darkness to the other side and into the glow of light that God provides in Christ is a profound experience of love and grace. As we forge through the difficult times in our own lives, a shadow is always there beckoning us towards the hope of the illuminated path ahead.

Reflection for the Week- December 8th 2008

Reading Genesis 1-3 as the theo-drama of creation opens it up for dynamic re-interpretation, first of all in the Old Testament itself, and then the New, and then for the many generations preceding ours, and finally for refiguring readers lives today and into the future. This mighty theo-drama represents a script that is a legitimate informer about God and nature, which has the capacity to situate readers on the stage and to refigure their lives in the name of the Creator.

Reflection for the Week- December 1st 2008

As readers of the scriptural story today we are foreigners to the text and its ancient Near Eastern and Greco-Roman context, yet we are not excluded from its time, narration, drama, and spherical refraction. The possibility remains for us to be grafted into the revelatory story of God’s creation and redemptive outpouring of love in Christ, which offers us a place on the stage of the cosmic drama of life. Renewing people and the earth is part of God’s majestic story. Fortunately, we’re invited to participate.
