I’m a fan of process theologian and author Bruce Epperly, and I particularly appreciate his invitation to “live a holy adventure”. We are all living a holy adventure, and I’m filled with gratitude, hope and excitement that our journeys are now linked, and that we are beginning to live our holy adventure together!
Jesus shows us that our holy adventure is now. The time of God’s action and activity is now, and it is overflowing. Jesus draws us into that brimming over. He draws us into the ever-flowing current of God’s love and action and activity. Jesus invites us on a holy adventure that has us seek to heal and restore brokenness in each other and in our world. It is a holy adventure that sees us strive for peace, justice, dignity, wholeness and love in our interactions, and in our relationships.
There is much blessing and holiness in the pattern of our Anglican tradition and worship, and in faith-filled community. Our gathering, our liturgy, and our shared prayer and song and sacrament holds us in the flow of God’s action and activity in the whole of our lives and it carries us on our holy adventure.
I feel tremendously blessed that we are now held together at Ascension, in the flow of God’s love and grace. Here’s to our holy adventure, in Jesus’ name!
