Long day doing Christmas prep today ...
but lots going through my mind as/through doing that.

Firstly, just did my round of blogs and spun out at something Colin who is guest blogging for Steve Taylor said on the grid blog topic for the week: source ... here it is:
[grid blog :: source]
The source of life {Trinity}
Out::sourced life {Incarnation}
So that we might re::source Kingdom life {Ecclesiology}

Which means that mission, life for others, is at the heart of Trinity. Which means that church, wagons circled, defensive, enjoying itself, enjoying its worship,
is a disjuntive, disordering, misrepresenting of the Source of Life.

How good is that!

Quite separately, been thinking about Simeon's response to Jesus (Luke 2): especially these words he speaks to Mary about him "the rejection will force honesty, as God reveals who they really are" ... Jesus brings light to what we want him too - and what we don't!

And separately again- been thinking about faith stages prompted by some thinking someone else in my community has been doing - but I will write about that another time.
