Advent Word 5 - Rebuild

Posted by Rob McClellan on

We have rebuilt a building at this little church we call our home.

And yet the beloved community is built whenever and however our relationship takes on the character of the Christ, when mutuality reigns, when recognition is the primary sight line, when blessing is the love language.  Too often we see something that is broken or aged as a sign of failure too painful to touch, rather than celebrating the something that is worth rebuilding, and perhaps even improving upon, selecting what to retain from the old -- this old picture, this mantle, this piece here -- and what to build anew of yet formed dreams.  There is so much worth rebuilding ... that relationship, that love of carving or playing the trombone or gardening on bended knee in the great cathedral, of putting pen to paper and imitating the very act of God.
