Easter | Seventh Sunday of Easter (Year B)
Acts 1:15-17, 21-26; Psalm 1; 1 John 5:9-13; John 17:6-19
I was having coffee with a friend, discussing the strange ritual of applying to jobs online. She has been looking for a teaching position with a livable salary; I am hoping to transition away from overnight shifts as a hospital chaplain. The job search involves daily rejection. As so many of us seek meaningful work to no avail, there's a cumulative toll to not being chosen.
The Bible's images for God must be taken in an analogical sense. Yet the Bible exhibits no anxiety about using them.
