Tradition

Traditions are a fundamental part of our human experience.  They ground us, they connect us to one another and they often bring meaning, peace and joy to our lives.  We are entering into the fall season that will usher in all kinds of beloved traditions…traditions at church, traditions at home, traditions in our neighborhoods and community.  But tradition, according to our scripture reading for this week, can also lead us down a slippery slope…especially in our lives of faith.  Because traditions can become worn out.  They can lose that which makes them lively and life giving.  They can become small and legalistic.  They can become more important, in and of themselves, than that which inspired them in the first place.  

What Shall We Wear?

As we have been moving out of pandemic lock down mode over these last months, as I’ve begun to attend a few social functions, I find myself more frequently asking this age old question:  What should I wear? Our reading from Ephesians is a good indicator that this truly MAY be an age old question!  The author talks about this very thing…what we should wear.  Granted, they’re not talking about what we should wear to church or work or the grocery store.  Rather the focus is on what we should wear, how we should clothe ourselves, for “battle” against the struggles we face.  This passage is moving for some and troubling for others with its warrior imagery.  We’ll spend time this Sunday exploring this text in relation to the last of the “Jesus as bread of life” texts from the Gospel of John.
