“Tradition is at once a passing on and a betrayal.”
John 16:12-15 “Revelation is progressive.” Ok. But how do we know God’s revelation when we hear it? Looking for community and listening for the Jesus story.
Romans 5:1-5 The Spirit empowers the recapitulation of Jesus’s story. But how do we proclaim the Jesus story without perpetuating a narrative of oppression? How about starting with this: God doesn’t give us crosses, the Romans do.
Psalm 8 We learn about where we fit in creation: we are not to dominate—we are stewards, not conquerors. We learn how to be faithful to God in such a way that we do, in fact, show forth God’s glory.
Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31 Finding our way in harmony with the created order: listening to Lady Wisdom. The bottom line might be just that: learn to listen.
