Bishop Hoyme is proud of how generous Our Savior's and Emmanuel have been to "let" me wear a Packers' jersey.
In the latest issue of The Lutheran, my buddy (pictured above with me), Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, writes about a "prescription against paralysis."
I love her quote that "It is not up to us to fix the church or the world—that has already been done in Christ. And since the victory has been won we are free in this in-between time to live into the new life God has brought about in this world."
She refers to the Ascension of Christ, and the two men in white robes asking the disciples if they're going to stand there all day, looking and waiting for Jesus to come back.
It connects with the sermon Bishop Rick Hoyme has provided for Sunday's services while many of us will be at they Synod Assembly. What are we doing while the Master (or Messiah) is away?
We don't have to save the world -- as Bishop Eaton says, that's been done.
We just have to live in the world, and share the Good News and the love of God.
After all, that is our Mission from God.
