Today, we contemplate life from the 4 th day on. Scriptures tell us that being raised up
with Christ, we ought to seek the things above highlighting that we are dead to ourselves
and hidden with Christ in God. We will focus on the ways of the communal life which we
are called into—we ought to be kind, compassionate, gentle, forgiving. Paul says love
that harnesses these traits is the true mark of unity.
In an impersonal world, the church recognized persons of every possible status, saw them all, and knew them all by name. May you find your face known by others and may you go into your community with Jesus’ love and embrace.
