Jesus' Mercy Changes Me, We and the World

No Meeting

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I recall C. S. Lewis’ story in “The Great Divorce,” in which the bishop dies and finds himself getting off a bus in some unknown place.

“Welcome to heaven,” someone says to the bishop. 

The bishop promptly presents himself to the person who seems to be in charge. “Where will we be gathering for the meeting?” he asks. (Bishops are addicted to meetings.)

There is no meeting he is told.

“Well, there must be a meeting. There is work to be done, good to be accomplished, problems to be addressed. We are responsible people who have responsibilities. When is the meeting?” asks the bishop.

No meeting. No work to be done. No responsibilities to be met. It’s done. Over. Finished. God has done it all for us.

—-For further reflection see Isaiah 53:4-12 and Mark 10:35-45.

Prayers: For the Gods Grace Community Church Transition Team who has prayerfully begun exploring options to be presented to the congregation regarding its future. 

*We hope to see all of you at the Zoom ministry called THE WELL , tonight at 630pm Mountain Time. If you are not currently on the Zoom invitation list please contact Vikki Luce*  

Still in one peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
