The Epistle (ancient snail mail for readers who ain’t church geeks) for this Sunday is Romans 12:9-21. I’ll include the whole text a few paragraphs down, with some commentary, after a short personal confession:
My immediate takeaway is how short I fall of this lesson’s call to humane, common sense, non “religious” (that is, not loaded with ceremonial or otherwise churchy jargon) behavior.
So it burst my personal bubble. My easing into the morning over coffee stumbled into full blown confession of sin. How little of the verse I apply, and how poorly I apply those parts at which I do endeavor.
Pic snagged here.
Then I got to thinking about the “bubble” accusation that we all fling around gratuitously these days: White people in suburbs live in a bubble, college students live in a bubble, the mainstream media is a big bubble of the like minded, etc. etc.
