Epiphany 2 - Year A
Simply being born a child of G*D does not seem to be enough to have us care for children.
Recognition by the poorest menials, rich foreigners, or a prophet such as Anna brings no additional shift from cultural expectations.
Simply having good 12-year-old questions of authority does not seem to be enough to have our spirit nurtured.
Witness of a spirit returning to one’s breathing being (instead of leaving) still leaves questions of commitment beyond belief. John can affirm Jesus for John’s disciples, but seemingly not for himself.
As you look around, where do you see the Spirit descend and remain? On a person? A group? An ecosystem? That is a call to be present there, not to send money or others, but to be personally present.
As you see the light dawn, be the light.
