Reflection for the Week - February 15

When the Christian faith is reduced to externals, doctrines, and social pleasantries, we’re definitely about as far as we can get from following in the footsteps of the Crucified and Risen One. In response to this woeful condition, the Great de-legitimizer of the humanly established status quo aims to turn what’s fake into that which is real. But this long suffering expression of a superabundant love and grace, when met with a stubborn refusal and the claim that we know best, won’t be received, even though the offer is mercifully extended again and again.
