I am not asking you to take them out of the world, but I ask you to protect them from the evil one.
As we make our way to Pentecost (and a return to worship together in-person!) we are mindful that this gospel did not begin with us. We do not own it. Indeed, we are grateful recipients of a religious fervor and expansive love birthed in the Middle East and Northern Africa.
That we too are called sons and daughters of God is astonishing. It should birth in us extraordinary gratitude and humility, which is, after all, the posture of faith.
On this last Sunday of online worship, enter in with gratitude and grace. Enter into worship.
