Genesis 29:15-28 for Sunday, July 27, 2014

How Can This Be








“Jesus brings the biblical tradition to a climax when he defines truth itself as personal rather than conceptual. He says, ‘I am the truth”…and then immediately defines himself as on who is in absolute relationship with his ‘Father”…and the Spirit who is in relationship to both…This rearranges the world of religion from arguments over ideas and concepts into a world of encounter, relationship and presence to the face of the oner. That changes everything.” ~ Richard Rohr, Things Hidden: Scripture as Spirituality, p. 61.

One thought on “Genesis 29:15-28 for Sunday, July 27, 2014

  1. “Let down your Greek mind” was a perfect instruction for me to prepare for meditation. The music replaced my racing thoughts and helped me focus on my breathing and quieted my mind. I liked the phrase at the end about finding something that might be able to continue “echoing in your mind”. That is often what is needed for me, to find a way to quiet the narrative in my head and then ultimately to replace those voices with softer, more healing words to “echo in my mind”. Thank you, Todd.
