May we who share Christ's Body live His risen life...


I find myself a Baptist pastoring in the United Church of Christ. A Seminarian in graduate business school. A young person pastoring an elderly congregation. Where do you find yourself? What are the interesting oddities of your life, your faith, your practice? You see, when Christ sat around a table with the disciples, He didn't only invite the most faithful, He invited the betrayer as well. He didn't only invite the men; the women were there as well. Christ wasn't just Lord of the table, He was the footwashing servant of all.
Child of God, you were made good. Holy. Whole. You, me, all of us, we're all invited back into resurrection life. We just need to be faithful to come back to the table.
