The Followers of Jesus as Ready. Comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Followers of Jesus as ready are ready to pick up that which has been forgotten or left out - ready to bring the community back together - to heal - to restore. When we are not ready to be a people like that, we will too often be people who walk by and go our own way without consideration for others. We are ready to be a part of the 'earth as it is in heaven' that we say each week in worship. The Followers of Jesus as ready may be afraid or anxious about the world we experience around us and yet we are ready to do something about it. At times that is as simple as listening to the stories of others so that we become filled with a bigger image of whose God's beloved are. Ready to listen - almost sounds odd in a world that is always ready to roll.
God of Love and All Hopefulness, within this day make us ready to be another piece of your image alive in this world. Amen.
