First Sunday after Christmas - C3

Year C

Colossians 3:12-17

Clothes are technologies of comfort and fashion/status. In this sense the experience of compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience are techniques of love, are the clothing covering and revealing love.

Suppose we dream about the Emperor's New Clothes and find ourselves without the trappings of love, what then?

Here we might listen in to a direction that moves from forgiveness (13) to love (14) to harmony (14) to peace (15) to thanks (15). In the sequence of hope, faith, and love the greatest is claimed to be love. In the sequence here, is the greatest of these "thanks"?

Is this confirmed in everything we do being done with thanks?

= = = = = = =

ouroboros traced again
a path told from long ago
arrive, arrive it says

finally arrive at forgiveness
work your way up to it
dissolve the past

finally arrive at love
work your way into it
today never over

finally arrive at harmony
work your way through it
each touching every

finally arrive at peace
work your way under it
pass every understanding

finally arrive at thanks
work your way over it
raising each act

ouroboros traced again
each work claiming eternity
and simply rolled on
