The Reign of God as Coming Forth. Comments to: adebelak@redeemerluth.com

The Reign of God as Coming Forth will not be put off by our moods or our priorities we have chosen for our lives. It keeps Coming Forth running alongside our ways of going through life. It is always present - always inviting - always ready to embrace us and guide us into new adventures. Those adventures may be ones we have considered previously or they may be something new - something out-of-the-box. The Reign of God as Coming Forth breaks in upon this day but it does not push its way on us. It is always offered as a gift we may or may not grasp and open up. I am always amused by the various ways this Reign presents itself to me - how it is Coming Forth out of that which I see no potential or that which I have even demonized. It is always renewing my life and helping me to review all things.

O God of New Life and All Hopefulness, interrupt our lives and take hold of us and show us the way you open up the day to your Reign of peace and love and mercy. Amen.
