Reflection

Prayer, by Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Derbyshire, 1973

martyn_lloyd-jones"Oh Lord our God, how can we thank thee sufficiently for this new and living way?

Oh forgive us for our folly in so constantly looking back, being tied by traditions and customs and habits that never satisfied anybody and are but a hindrance and a confusion.

Lord, deliver us from this and grant that with the apostle, thy servant of old, we may say: forgetting the things that are behind, looking forward, we may press forward together, strong in the Lord and in the power of his might ..."

The Weakest in the Center: October 30 Devotional by Henri Nouwen

nouwenThe Weakest in the Center

The most honored parts of the body are not the head or the hands, which lead and control.  The most important parts are the least presentable parts. That's the mystery of the Church.  As a people called out of oppression to freedom, we must recognize that it is the weakest among us - the elderly, the small children, the handicapped, the mentally ill, the hungry and sick - who form the real center.  Paul says,  "It is the parts of the body which we consider least dignified, that we surround with the greatest dignity"  (1 Corinthians 12:23).

The Church as the people of God can truly embody the living Christ among us only when the poor remain its most treasured part.  Care for the poor, therefore, is much more than Christian charity.  It is the essence of being the body of Christ.
