Strange as it may be, Christmas in its own way is an everyday occurrence. Involving the natural and the supernatural. So first, here’s a taste of the natural. For Mary, and their son Jesus, Joseph plays a surrogate role as provider for his family. Family, and responsibility are aspects of Christmas to be valued. Exemplified by Joseph, and the Mary’s of our modern world. Which extends, beyond Christmas day and makes a circular journey.
The supernatural always intersects with the natural of human nature. Most are unaware of this supernatural / natural phenomenon. For the majority of families, it just happens. Probably because of a complete lack of interest because this phenomenon moves across our time line very slowly. And at the end, makes a sudden burst to complete the circle of the calendar.
With families being tossed into the madness of another Christmas season. Absent all the lessons from the natural / supernatural that should should have learned. Jesus is always hopeful, that through another cycle of the Christmas pageant, all its lessons will be learned, and then digested spiritually. Making for better people, communities, and nation.
America is going in the wrong direction. As the natural with its apparent superior digestive powers, is destroying the supernatural. Which will make for some very turbulent times for families, nation and the world community.
Blessed are those, who understand this statement. As America goes, so goes the world. That’s not just a euphemism, it’s a supernatural declaration. Rejected by more, and more people, which will only make wrong right by legislation. Making the good old days a footnote in history. The natural calls it social progress, but the supernatural calls it death.
Clergy people get sick, vacation, retire or move on. This padre duly ordained can fill that vacancy temporarily. Perhaps teach a Sunday School class. Share in an adult Bible study group. You select the topic from the galley of the usual, or travel the alleys of the unusual.
Not all readers are associated with the church, but are interested in spirituality just not the church. So select a topic from the allies of the unusual. A topic that the organized church won’t touch. Because people might learn the truth, and change themselves and their world. Good bye donald and cronies.
This Padre also has a degree in political science allowing for complete repertoire of topics that can be selected. From the corridors of the traditional arena right through to the furnace of issues seldom discussed.
Arrangements made through the Contact Us link on my Home page. Living room conversations work well, as do other forums where people can gather.
CfS is a church without walls, and therefore, without membership. That in itself is a transcendental corridor because how can non-existing structure be a church? It isn’t a play on words.
