Today is Maundy Thursday, an appropriate day to reflect on DaVinci’s Last Supper… click HERE
Okay that’s the last link today.
ok, its linking day I guess, no originality but stuff I see is worth your time… Lazo has a very important cartoon HERE which begs the question that I asked my buddy John a few weeks ago… what is church and how do you know?
over on JR’s blog, he posted some random links that at least a couple of you guys will find interesting, so go check out JR’s post on random links… click HERE
so as I sit here late working on all I have to get done today (what a whiner) I am struck with what Rob Bell said, in the DVD “Everything is Spiritual” about the Jews in Egypt… “the Jews in Egypt were known for how many bricks they could make, not who they were but what they did, what they accomplished” (my paraphrase – I think I’m really close)… I said to my students after watching this that we who live and work in a wealthy culture (USA – the ‘ville) are often caught up in “living in Egypt” when we see ourselves by what we do or earn instead of seeing ourselves as who or what or whose we are. Tomorrow is the Thursday before Good Friday and it was on that day that Jesus prayed with and for the disciples (click HERE to read part of that prayer). In that prayer he talks about our unity with God. We find our value by who we are, NOT by what we do. Bell says we need sabbath to remember this. We need sabbath to remember how to JUST BE. This is a good week to do that. To reflect on what Jesus experienced for us. To allow us to change what and who we are… not by what we do, but by what He makes us. Take a sabbath. So go home already instead of working late, right? Sabbath.
