"I set before you..."
"If you choose..."
"Offering your gift at the altar..."
"Go, be reconciled..."
Our readings offer us many choices. Where are you being led? What ideas are rising up in you?
Will you ponder what "commandments" mean and what it means to "keep" them? Will you discern something about the way human beings hurt one another and what it means to seek reconciliation? What about forgiveness?
...and what about all that we "desire" in life, and how those desires may (or may not) pull us away from what God desires of us?
There are many different directions in which to take these texts. What are your choices and offerings?
I have lots to offer: coffee, tea, hot chocolate, eggs, pancakes, toast, muffins. What is your pleasure? Please, pull up a chair, let's share!
