Reflections for Nov. 17 and 24, 2013

November 17
“The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, the lion shall eat straw like the ox.” Isaiah 65:17–25

God sees reconciliation where there is misunderstanding and hostility. Things are going to be transformed – there will be life and new homes where there was once death and despair. Everything will live in harmony – creation, too.

Something to think about, talk about, or do: This week think about the areas of your life that need transformation. Maybe cluttered cupboards, an unhealthy diet, or an over-booked schedule. Pick one of these areas and work on transforming it into something more balanced in order to bring harmony to your own life.

November 24: Reign of Christ/Christ the King Sunday
“Christ is the image of the invisible God.” Colossians 1:11–20

Christ holds all things together – a way for God to also hold us close. We have a hard time imagining the complete glory of the Reign of Christ. God’s ways are more grand than we can imagine. We can know that through Christ we can learn
more about God’s wisdom and what we need to do to become the loving community that God wants us to be.

Something to think about, talk about, or do:  This week start and add to a list of ways that you see God at work in the world around you.
