Pick It Up and Follow
Have you ever paid to use Google? Or Facebook? How about access the wifi at your favorite coffee shop? Our lives are full of services we use for which we pay nothing. On other hand you probably paid for the device upon which you are reading this email. Our lives are full of things we have paid for.
We are used to paying for goods, and we are used to services which ask nothing of us (except access to our personal data so they can sell that information to advertisers!).
The Gospel we Christians proclaim is the free gift of God’s reconciling welcome to all people.
The Gospel we Christians proclaim is the bearing of our crosses in the footsteps of Jesus.
Well, which is it?
Is it a free gift, or is it a costly journey?
Let’s find out together as we explore the Scriptures for this Sunday.
