Heading Toward Lent: A Sabbath Meditation

The mystery at the heart of the church is that we are called to let Jesus abide in us. The scandal at the heart of the church is that Jesus doesn’t come alone. He comes dragging a whole bunch of other folks with him.

— Sarah Jobe, Creating with God, p. 115

    That “whole bunch of other folks” is a great reminder that at the core of Jesus being is community.

      That’s one of the reasons why this quote stood out to me. Making room for Christ in our lives is necessarily an outwardly focused act, expanding our communities as well as our comfort zones, rather than an inwardly focused one. I think we get that wrong a lot of the time!
