The theme this week might seem harsh. It might also lead us to point fingers at those out there or over there who are stiff-necked. Rarely will we realize that we are the ones in need of a neck massage. This week begins with confession. We ask forgiveness for being a part of the problem instead of the means to the solution for our broken world. We might even go off after other gods – gods of nation or of self rather than the God we are called to worship. We are some of those who make light of the invitation at times; we are those who attend but don’t bring our wedding garment, don’t enter into the spirit of the call to discipleship. We are often halfhearted at best. So, let this time to be our opportunity to reengage, to recommit to the journey of discipleship.
