Reflection for July 29, 2018

Worthy of the call

The readings for the next few weeks will focus on Jesus as our Bread of Life. For example, Sunday’s Gospel takes us to the Sea of Galilee where Jesus feeds a crowd with only a few loaves of bread and two fish.

Tucked in between the Gospel and first reading from the Second Book of Kings is a call from St. Paul to the Ephesians. In it we hear how Jesus Christ is to manifest in you and me so that others may know Christ. Paul writes, “live in a manner worthy of the call you have received,” specifically, live with humility, gentleness, patience, love, peace and hope.

Using the picture below, imagine you, too, are on the mountaintop.. As you look down and see the world, which of the six "manners" is Jesus asking you to make a reality?

CommentBubbleSo high up in the clouds ... It just doesn't feel 'safe' or 'real' for me up here. I am, instead, sent into 'littleness.' That is the one word that comes to me. I am sent into 'littleness,' to be one-with-all-littleness. It is the littlest and tiniest of blossoms that attract me, often overlooked by others. But they are so beautiful, so intricate, and so much 'of earth - 'so dependent on earth - and the total web-of-life for their life. And the hummingbird -- so small and tiny the egg, the nest - but so beautiful and graceful and miraculous the bird. So little ... so good. I am sent into 'littleness.' "Littleness" is my home. -- Linda
