The Followers of Jesus as longing. Comments to: adebelak@redeemerluth.com

The Followers of Jesus as longing know the wonder of God's Reign that is not yet at hand and we begin to experience that wonder today. It is experienced by taking the time to step into and live within that which is promised. So, for example, in a world that often becomes a monster that feeds off of hatred and racism and classism, we step out into this world displaying that which we long for: love - community - equality. We long for a new life - we begin to live within it without having it all completely put in place. Therefore our longing can take us out into a life that is not at all appreciated or respected or honored. The Followers of Jesus as longing will not stay within the bounds of what is. We know and see and hear of other ways to live - ways that make the heart of God glad and Creation dance and sing.

O God of New Life and All Hopefulness, let the world begin to dance in sing within your promises.  Amen
