We Are Beggars

Luke 1-2  (Lk. 5:27-32)
We are all born, and with our birth there is much joy and expectation.  What will this baby become?  We live our lives out in all of its journey, like Jay, 19, who is gay, dad in military, mother a nurse, and he has been kicked out because of his sexulaity, struggling, with what he is going to do, how he is going to survive–from joy to struggle, as all of our lives go. Jesus was born and his path led to calvary. Look at the Magnificate: Luke 1:46-55 and reflect upon deeply upon each word and each phase of biblical text, and in context of our lectionary reading today reflect upon the words of D.T. Miles: “Evangelism is just one beggar tellingt another beggar where to find bread,” recognizing our shared humanity with others and our common “beggarhood” before God. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
