Thank you for these words of wisdom. They are beautiful and so on-point. I may have to quote you in my sermon this week.
Burke United Methodist Church
Thanks and blessings to you, Morgan! Quote away.
Preached on Zchariah and Elizabeth this last Sunday. Zach. was forced into silence for nine months (Recollection) because his false self needed that . To be undone. Elizabeth went into seclusion for five months as a responce to God’s miracle. Voluntairy recollection. Says something about masculine & feminine responce to the numinous.
Thanks for making those connections of recollection to the Zechariah and Elizabeth!
I posted this on our youth blog because I think it gets at our theme for Advent. Our theme is “Simply Christmas” last week’s focus was “Less Worry, More Hope”, this week’s focus “Less Talking, More Listening”.
