Embodiment: Luke 24 (2018.07.01 Sermon)
July 5th, 2018 | Daniel Read
Our friend Weylin Lee from Vox Veniae joined us for a sermon on Jesus’ time on earth in a resurrected body.
Quotes and Resources Mentioned:
- “Not only are we loved, but we too are called to heal and to liberate. This healing power in us will not come from our capacities and our riches, but in and through our poverty. We are called to discover that God can bring peace, compassion and love through our wounds.” — Jean Vanier
- “Your mind can deceive you and put all kinds of barriers between you and your nature; but your body does not lie. Your body tells you, if you attend to it, how your life is and if you are living from your soul or from the labyrinths of your negativity. … The human body is the most complex, refined, and harmonious totality. Your body is, in essence, a crowd of different members who work in harmony to make your belonging in the world possible. The soul is not simply within the body, hidden somewhere within its recesses. The truth is rather the converse. Your body is in the soul. And the soul suffuses you completely.” — John O’Donohue
- “Spiritual formation is a combination of our action and God’s action. We must do something, but we rely on God to provide what is needed in order to change. Sleep is a perfect example of the combination of discipline and grace. Sleep is an act of surrender. It is a declaration of trust. It is admitting that we are not God (who never sleeps), and that is good news. We cannot make ourselves sleep, but we can create the conditions necessary for sleep.” — James Bryan Smith
