Worship and scripture peaked our interest this morning. We covered the ground from Job still demanding an audience with God – even though he knew he could never find God; to a reminder that God isn’t simply something from back then – rather that God and God’s spirit are vibrant and active in the world today; and finally in the tension of Mark’s gospel as punctuated by Jesus’ interaction with the rich man who asks “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus’ answer isn’t simple or comforting – eternal life isn’t a transaction, it is a relationship. But it is in the tension of Jesus’ “demand” and invitation that we find real life. What do you find that impedes your growth in your life with God?
I invite your comments,
