Year A - Pentecost +21 or Community Practice 21
November 2, 2014
So Jesus says to a crowd and his disciples, “Be humble to be exalted.” The Lord says to Joshua, “I exalt you, so walk humbly into flowing rivers.”
As for me and my house, we are pleased that you are the ones walking into the river with only a promise. We’ve seen too many promises delayed and changed to be willing to act on one more.
It is surprising when we who are not exalted turn out to be exalted (make it to the other shore with a dry sandal).
Blessings on your exaltedness and your humility. They go hand-in-hand and hand-to-hand.
