Voice and Image

Sorry for my absence.  We were on vacation and for some reason, the internet and the cellular signal were not very good.

I'll be posting beachy pictures soon, though.

For today:
In the beginning God spoke all things into being -- and for the rest of time all things are speaking of God. This is a sacramental vision of the world: God comes to us in and through the very stuff of the earth.
-- On Our Way: Christian Practices for Living a Whole Life, edited by Dorothy C. Bass and Susan R. Briehl
We make Christ real for people.  If you focus on being transformed by God - to being confirmed into God's likeness, then you will become a transforming power (thoughts from Joe Hill's sermon in April, 2014).

Think about those two thoughts for a moment.

  • God spoke us into being, and we are created in the image of God.  
  • As we are transformed into the image of God (through God's sanctifying grace), we become the way in which God speaks into the world.

If you find that Christ is not visible in the world around you, then what change can you allow God to make in you so that Christ is seen?
