Our scripture today walked us through a narrative that St. John’s can appreciate: by remembering our history we know that God is constant and with us, even when we don’t recognize God’s presence. Because we are able to recollect that truth we get to live fully in the responsibility that follows our relationship with God: the sharing of the gospel of redemption to the community God connects us with. Because we are related to God we have no option except to share the gospel message – with words when necessary but more often in our actions. How does God prepare you to be a faithful witness?
