Exodus 15: 1B-11, 20-21; Romans 14: 1-12
Look at us all, given this thing we call church, that we call tradition, full of histories of love, and struggle, striving and trying. It’s a history of people reaching out to a God who ever always draws near and reaches out to us. Feel this spirit that binds us, that holds us upright, that gathers us just as the skeleton gathers the flesh. It holds us upright even when we are weary, when we aren’t ready, in the waiting.
