Lent 3 - Year B
1 Corinthians 1:18-25
Is there no foolish question? How about, Who do people say I am? About the only possible response is another question - Who do you say you are?
When it comes to how we live together, is it foolish or not to need an external force for living morally with one another? What is the effective power of a commandment? Or is it simply a matter of being able to raise a question about choices about to be made?
Are we finally left with the foolishness of silence? One hand clapping, and the like, where foolishness is wisdom and weakness, strength?
In all of these there is the mystery of an alternative choice beyond the limits of our imagination and the traditions which have come down to us. Blessings upon your alternatives, seen and unseen.
