Year C - Epiphany 3 or Guiding Gift 3
January 24, 2016
In three big jumps we move from baptismal belovedness to mother-murmured miracle to transformative teaching.
“Father” blessing plus “Mother” instruction begets vocational insight and appropriation of the past for the sake of the future.
In the midst of what you consider “Home”, may you find your jumping off place for the sake of the rest of your life.
Join me in an affirmation narrow enough to contain your life and wide enough to be worth investing in.
spirit is with me
passing an anointing of my ancestors to me
to encourage my relatives and descendants
to claim release, recovery, and resurrection
this and every year
Repeating this until my head is clean and my heart filled, I return this greeting to the universe. I sit zazen. Gazing beyond today—I enter today.
