Passion

with feeling

with purpose

with all the forces of life and death

+++++

how do we practice passion faithfully?

sounds like a contradiction

faithfulness has become staid, drab, a march to boredom, lifeless

while passion sounds like a crowd of thousands cheering on the sporting event, the rock concert, or reality TV show.

if we measure by the numbers, that is

if we listen to the critics

+++++

but what of passion and faithfulness in everyday life?

how do we practice passion faithfully?

and passion for what?

and whom?

+++++

life and death, purpose and feeling

this is the week we give it our all in the church

most of the social world around us says scale is the key:

bigger, louder, more dramatically, those are what tell us something has passion

this seems an incomplete answer

unsatisfying at best

+++++

this week as we practice the passion of Jesus together

listen for the invitation to ask yourself:

where is passion in my life?

in the life of the communities where I give of myself?

how are we living

with feeling

with purpose

with all the forces of life and death

with passion?

+++++
