“I pray that…Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith as you are being rooted and grounded in love.” Ephesians 3:17
This is my favourite passage for beach walking. I’m fortunate enough to live just a few minutes from the beach and, most days, I can be found walking and meditating on this verse. It’s become like a mantra for me. My hope is that, if I absorb it into my very being, it will affect all that I do. Lord knows the world needs folk who are rooted and grounded in love.
This is just one of the passages on offer in the RCL this week. You can find discussion in Tuesday’s Lectionary post.
Perhaps you’re tackling, instead, the other side of love with David and Bathsheba or God’s abundant provision with Elisha or the feeding of the 5000 in the gospels.
Wherever the Spirit is leading you this week, we’d love to hear about it – share your thoughts and your struggles, share a link to your reflections if you’re calling it done, while we encourage one another to be rooted and grounded in love as we preach God’s word this week.
