Oscar Romero: Prophet of Incarnation (Christmas)

“I am glad, brothers and sisters, that our church is persecuted precisely for its preferential option for the poor and for trying to become incarnate in the interest of the poor…” This week we remember Jesus’s incarnation, consider God’s presence with us in body and solidarity, and reflect on the incarnationn through the living parable, Oscar Romero.

Pondering Mary (Fourth Sunday of Advent)

This week, Rob led us in our reflection for the fourth Sunday of Advent on Luke 1:26-38. Here we find Mary as an example for us in responding to God’s purposes, and we learn from her what it means to “let it be.” How do we respond to interruptions? How do respond to the unexpected?

Joined with Shame

God in Jesus Christ crucified mingles with what is most shameful to us, and this mingling is a stumbling block, foolishness and weakness to those who are perishing, but it’s God’s power, wisdom and salvation to those who believe.

No Fear in Love (Bread for the World Sunday)

This week we celebrated Bread for the World Sunday, and David Gist talked to us about love. Specifically, that in love there is no fear. What are the things that we fear that keep us from love? Jesus comes to send away fear, we no longer fear our neighbor, whatever their race, immigration status, politics, etc. And more than that, we turn the other way to love and act for our neighbor.
