How do we celebrate the guardian? We describe the attributes of this guardian best through sightings of the work of the Christ among us. When have you experienced the guardian of your soul? When have you acted as the guardian of souls for others? That’s the story we need to share. We celebrate God in the abstract, but we more powerfully celebrate the God at work among us and through us. “We know it is true because it is in the Bible” is one way to present God to the congregation. And that is a powerful and effective way, let’s be clear. But “we know it is true because it is happening among us and in us” is also a powerful and effective way to present God to one another and the world. Some of us have had a direct and even mystical experience of that guardian. But more of us have felt that guardian through the words and actions of the community that surrounds us.
