“When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.”
How wide is the love and mercy of God? Consider the examples of who Jesus calls out as with great faith? The Centurion, the Samaritan, the Canaanite woman… All three are outsiders. How does this help us understand our community at Spirit of Life? How do we define our congregation? What is our mission?
And consider Jesus meeting the man with leprosy, the most unclean. Who in our communities have the social stigma of being the most unclean? What does Jesus do? How does this help us to see where we are called to go and walk following Jesus?
Let’s keep walking together. Day ten already in the YOTB. Hope this is as helpful for you as it is for me.
