The way Jesus radically loves doesn’t make sense if you use the criteria of this world.
What does Jesus mean when he talks about God’s “kingdom”? He spends a lot of time offering many metaphors for it.
What exactly does it mean to rejoice in the Lord?
Ever notice that everyone around Jesus is always grumbling, but Jesus takes a different approach?
What are those things, people, events, in our lives that indicate who we are? For King Nebuchadnezzar it was written on the wall.
As 21st century Christians we look through the lens of history having already happened. We approach Advent in a way that already knows the next chapter of the story. There’s a deeper story that is ours, too.
A reflection on this Sunday’s gospel reading (First Sunday of Lent).
Sometimes our life has moments that say, “To be continued…” But God does not let us dwell in uncertainty forever.
Pray with this Sunday’s gospel reading using your imagination.
