Colossians 3:1-4 (Easter)

Year A - Easter or Assured
April 20, 2014

If to be raised with Christ is to be born with Christ, we are, above all, to seek the well-being of earth and neighbor—“Peace on Earth, Good Will to all” and all that.

At best this is a reflexive admonition—set your mind on things that are above for that will drive your right back to setting your mind here.

So be an anonymous Christian (read your Rahner) in the same way that Jesus was an anonymous G*D—born in a manger, growing quietly, engaging an intentional mission in and for creation and people.

This is not about some end-of-time scenario, but what are you revealing right now about what constitutes common good for earth and others. If this is not attended to, any other speculation about later simply will fail to apply.

Claim your place as G*D’s right-hand person and affirm all that comes with that responsibility.
