The Inaugural Address
God's "Thing" for the Oppressed

Everything Means More Than It Seems

image from

" And if you had known what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless. For the Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.'”

(Matthew 12:7-8 ESV)

Shadows are shallow shades of  deflected light imitating substance.

They are a sub-reality reflecting a more tangible reality which may, itself, be pointing to a deeper reality.

God has stepped into our reality illuminating the essence of every marker of meaning, crisscrossing the circuits of the sun, casting shadows in places and casting light in others, pointing and appointing.

God speaks and the words themselves are substantive.

God breaths and life is born.

God moves and every movement is word and truth.

God shines and that truth becomes clearer.

Everything means more than it seems.

May you find a Sabbath blessing this weekend and a space of rest and fulfillment.
