1 Corinthians 1:1-9

Year A - Epiphany 2 or Guiding Gift2
January 19, 2014

Look around. The context of your journey is large. You are moving well beyond today to be able to see the long line that has led here and to anticipate even more to come. This long view enriches your moment in time.

Every gift needed is available in a community that works together to transcend our current limits so tomorrow won’t be bound according to the limits of today.

The faithfulness of G*D is found in your trusting you have been called together to work together. G*D’s faithfulness can be thwarted by our extreme freedom to break covenant with one another for a momentary advantage. This does fail as our only advantage is how well we can blend our gifts into a working whole.

Do feel free to substitute for the holy words here. If you leave them out it turns out this is a relatively simple message.

Paul, called beyond self and related to all, announces to you: Goodwill and Health. I give thanks for the gifts you have. In every way you are enriched by your calling tomorrow into being through an engagement of what you now know. This Way is being continually strengthened in you that your best will be activated and revealed to all of creation. Together you have the strength to see this journey to its end and find yourselves “in a place just right”. Trust your fellowship, one with another and all manner of things will “come round right”.
