Lent 4 - Year B
How we interpret meta-meanings affects our engagement with others (people and systems).
Has there been a radical shift from being children of wrath (posited as who we naturally are) to now being saved through faith in Christ Jesus (proposed as a gift from G*D)? In an either/or world, this is possible. In a both/and environment, this is not so clear.
A part of the difficulty is locating the action. If there is only creature and creator the logical reduction is to either/or, one or the other is the cause of our experienced reality. If there is also a partnership available between the two, a desired outcome of good works will take all the best of both.
If this movement from being dead to being alive is not on-going, we end up being more than “mostly dead”.
May your interpretation of who you are and where you look for energy, be blessed with insight and discernment. May you not stop too soon in your analysis.
