3-13-16: Extravagant Dreams
Sunday’s scriptures speak not of scarcity, but abundance. God is about to do something new—something that will surpass God’s mighty acts of the past, for now God brings the people home from exile. The psalmist calls us to dream extravagantly, for even in the midst of sadness and tears, there is the expectation that joy will abound. In John’s Gospel, Mary extravagantly anoints Jesus with costly perfume shortly before his death. In this act, she gives of herself to honor him. Can we do less? See you Sunday.
Yours on the journey,Pastor B.J.
