Isaiah 61:1-4,8-11I Thessalonians 5:16-24 • John 1:6-8, 19-28
We are the word, the logos.
The many words, libraries, Alexandria, Roberts, Home library, my father librarian, planted the book seed.
Like a silver tongue of old, where the words come alive ,when we bring breath to voice.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon us to bring, salvation, mission, healing, liberty, release, comfort
good news, liberty to the captives. This is year of the Lord’s favour, the jubilee year, debts wiped away, freedom. The fields are fallow. The land is returned to the original owners and restored. There is an abundant garden. This is for the nations of the world. We to recognize deliverance. The promise is the new Jerusalem, living, being, faith in motion, with a mission, faith in action.
Today we pray without ceasing
Live in light, imminent, expectation of Christ’s return. This is tradition affirming the beloved, tender caring for the children.
John testified to the light! Light of the world. The word, the logos, humanity walks. John and Jesus sent by God to witness, God within. Time and space, God embodied, loving kindness.
The Voice in the wilderness.
Hope, relationship, God is now, God comes to us. God within, living pages of the dead sea scrolls. Listen to the love, be the living word.
