Reflection for the Week- July 26th, 2010

Lord God, we call out to you for wisdom, strength, and patience. Help us know how to love more deeply, to be courageous when so much that is wrong with us and with the world appears to be out of control, and to have endurance in serving others as we look forward to and await the glorious renewal of all things.

Reflection for the Week- July 19th, 2010

Finding an original is like looking for the first pair of Levis or the first aspirin. God is the only Being, so it seems to me, who is capable of originality. But what is breathtaking is that out of what precedes us, we can produce something new. Sedimentation therefore shrouds who we are and what we do, yet innovation persists to contribute to life in discovering more and more what can be, from what already is.

Reflection for the Week- July 12th, 2010

Notions of the possible should illumine our lives. God is the God of the possible. Think of creation. Reflect on humanity. Ponder the incarnation. Envision all things renewed. Strangely and mysteriously incomprehensible all, but we can know sufficiently and find ourselves known intimately. Being here and there is a wonder of imaginary ontology and representing the incomprehensible on the face of the earth.

Reflection for the Week- July 5th, 2010

In the midst of catastrophic destructions of the natural world, lamentable economies, and ruinous governmental policies, necessary reform seems far from being a priority on the environmental, financial, and political agendas. Maybe we just don’t like bad news and once it arises, we do everything we can to ignore it. God is not pleased by the folly of our times. Confession, rooted in the foolishness of God expressed in Christ crucified, is a first step in moving to fresh and innovative directions. Embrace the good news of God’s kingdom, and help bring its resources into the whole of life.
