[No Subject]Beautiful.  Thank you for posting the video of Fr. Jim's Mass. Attending Fr. Jim's funeral was so comforting.  The support of so many other hurting, loving people.  His loving family and friends.  All the priests, deacons, our seminarians.  Our Resurrection family and parishioners from many of his previous parishes.  Love, hope and the sense of a never-ending belief in God's eternal afterlife just filled the church.Fr. Jim is now at peace with God, at home in the new Jerusalem.  He will live on in all the people he has touched.  We will miss him deeply, but carry on his love and his legacy, each of us enhancing the world because of him.Thank you for letting me experience the comfort of Fr. Jim’s Celebration of Life Mass again through this video.  I needed this, and will continue to.Peace and hugs, Mel Magee

Status Quo changes take faith by Leon Milnes on Oct 10, 11:44am
Status Quo changes take faith

I often struggle with not letting faith drive my actions. Too often, I am concerned that the status quo is not to be 'messed with' or authorities be questioned. 

I f I were to see a man come into the gathering space and claim to be Jesus returning, and saw him perform a healing on the spot, would I be willing to drive to Bishop Campbells office and tell him that Jesus is back and I saw him in action? I don't know that I would. 

(March 31, 2012) John 11:45-56 by Leon Milnes on Oct 7, 4:27pm
(March 31, 2012) John 11:45-56

 

After the raising of Lazarus, the division in the people escalates. "Many of the Jews who had come to Mary and seen what Jesus had done began to believe in him. But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done."
 
The use of the word "but" indicates that the chief priests and Pharisees did not believe. How could they then explain the many signs that Jesus performed? It's not explained. The chief priests and Pharisees are portrayed as acting out of self-preservation and maintenance of the status quo. What made them think that their power and actions would conquer the power of the man performing signs, who had already demonstrated power over life and death? The example of such blindness makes me think harder about the blindness that we have across nations today. Who has the bigger picture and acts for the greater good? Who is plotting to protect the status quo?
(March 29, 2012) John 8:51-59 by Leon Milnes on Oct 7, 4:22pm
(March 29, 2012) John 8:51-59

 

Sometimes it's easy to be like the Jews in the temple (John 8) and not see people for who they really are. When Jesus proclaimed himself, they thought he was possessed. He continued and they threw stones at him. Why did they reject him?
 
I find myself with this same challenge when it comes to parenting. The balance between giving my kids guidance with firm parameters vs. letting them 'be' who they think they are or want to be. Who says that my parameters are 'right', especially when it relates to physical appearance? There are more issues with girls: piercings, hair color, clothes, make-up. I try to sift through my artificial parameters that relate to how I WANT my daughter to be and to settle on only those that NEED to be. But, I don't know if I'm very good at holding to that. I'm concerned how others will see her and judge her. I just want my daughter safe.
