Mary the Revolutionary

May 31, 2012

Lk. 1:39-56 Visitation of the Virgin Mary

Mary is a figure of the future, an image of the new community–the first shall be last, the weak is strong, the greatest is the least, the poorest is the richest, the lowest is the highest–sadly-we live in a world where power and privilege, palaces, badges and titlesof honor–are important. 23 year old Wayne was at my door this morning, hungry, needing socks, clothes-and forgotten by society–Mary, the greatest revolutionary still has many revolutions to accomplish. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!

Mk. 10:28-31–I received an email from a pastor in a homophobic denomination asking me how I could “preach the Gospel”, and my response is Mark 10:28–31. I left everything many years ago to preach, and God has not let me down yet. It is not an issue for me. Tonight we served 150 people, I spent time with fifteen individually today–I preach the Gospel, “with as few as words as possible,” in season and out of season. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God

Mk. 10:17-27 In this political season we let our emotions and fears sepate us from one another; we either black and white, when Jesus lays it out so simply to love your God, and your neighbor as yourself–begin with that–each of us-and we see that in God’s eyes we are one–and that we are called to share with each other–but it begins with each one of us, and it is painful and tough.  Our love of money, and false sense of economic security destroys us–it is only as we embrace and share with one another that we truly find security. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
