Reflection for the Week–October 20

As readers of the scriptural story today we are foreigners to the text and its ancient Near Eastern and Greco-Roman context, yet we are not excluded from its time, narration, drama, and spherical refraction. The extraordinary possibility of integration, for us to be grafted into the revelatory story of God’s creation and redemptive outpouring of love in Christ, remains a marvel. Renewing people and the earth is part of God’s majestic destiny and fortunately we’re invited to participate in this adventure.
