Gospel Text for Sunday, 3 July, 2011 (abbreviated)
Matthew 11. 25-30
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Every week I post a passage from the Bible. It is the same passage that tens of thousands of people will be reading in their homes and in their churches the following Sunday. Reading and engaging the Bible text this way connects us with millions of people, past and present who are also looking for evidence of the Holy in their lives... looking for hOlybytes.
After you read the text or wonder about the image try asking yourself these simple questions:
What did I notice?
What attracts or repulses me?
How does this connect to my life?
What am I wondering now?
Then please share your hOlybytes by clicking on comment and adding your response.
Thanks for sharing your hOlybytes! Grace and Shalom to all,
I have a dream. Actually I have several dreams. They are connected.
I have a dream that believers who have found the Holy in their lives and in Holy Scriptures will tell their stories online.
I have a dream that seekers who describe themselves as spiritual but not religious will read the believer’s stories and be surprised by the Holy.
I have a dream that believers and seekers will connect as they share their glimpses of the Holy – their hOlybytes.
I have a dream that we will all reach beyond our selves to ignite the Holy in all of life – hOlybytes blessings.
I am privileged to serve as an Episcopal priest and the vicar of Church of the Apostles, Oro Valley, Arizona.
