Over the next several issues my hope is to point out several opportunities for community engagement. I also want to acknowledge the ways in which our community is engaged as a model for the greater community.
One of the issues I have as both a priest and member of our larger community is that we seem to talk a lot and act less.
That is the way it seems. It is no different now than it was for the early church. James the brother of Jesus had a lot to say about such phenomena. Basically, platitudes and holy tomes, prayers and looking pious, for James, were hollow without works. He was the original ‘walk the talk’ Apostle.
So this column over the next few issues will explore “walking the talk.’ Because if this faith that is professed will ever become a place of hope and if our community will ever become a place where we can all be one then we have to start walking.
I am grateful for the opportunity to once again visit with the readers of Ambush and look forward to a renewed and faithful experience.
