Raised for Life
Faith in Jesus Christ and life in the communion of the Church is presented by the gospel this week as a "raised to life". In fact the gospel uses the same word for the raising of the dead girl as it does for the raising of Jesus from the dead. We see in the healing of the woman with the hemorrhage that Jesus is "power of God for life".
Is your faith experienced as resurrection, power, freedom for life? Do you need to be raised to life?
Get into the ring! How this works...
This is easy! Each week on Thursday I post my homily idea...my main focus for preaching this coming Sunday. What I am hoping for is a reaction from people in the pews. Does my "focus" connect with your daily life, faith, and experience? Or not? Either affirm the direction I am going in (by giving me an example from your life) or challenge me, ask for clarification! Questions are the best! Reaction rather than reflection is what I'm looking for here. Don't be afraid, get in the ring. Ole!
