Second Sunday after Epiphany - B

Years B
1 Samuel 3:1-10 (11-20)
Psalm 139:1-6, 13-18
1 Corinthians 6:12-20
John 1:43-51


With tingling ears we have searched and searched for something that will not disappoint. We have searched inside ourselves and found the house of Eli still alive and well. We have lowered our expectations of everything and everywhere, it is all like Nazareth - unacceptable as a starting place.

A big place we searched was the law but we found it didn't reflect a Law of Justice very well. We could follow it forever and never find it brought us to a beneficial place, only a place bounded by Eli's sons waiting for a loophole to be found.

Finally it is important to fall back on such basics as being trustworthy and without deceit. These are very tough roads to travel that go beyond easy, prior, answers and are continually in need of integrated responses.

Finally it becomes a question of whom we will be with at the end.

If we will be with those we are now with, what response is needed now?
If we will be with ourselves as we are now, what response is needed?
If we will be with that unknown to us, what response is now needed?

= = = = = = =

follow me
come and see
hurry on
we will come to a mirror
and see as we are seen

choices will be feasted upon
responses will be made and remade
we'll see how this looks
and that

shapes will be formed
lives hidden will be revealed
roads will open
laws will fade

hurry
pay your money
takes your chance
you are seen
you can see
