Where does revelation come from these days? Not burning bushes. Not voices in the sky…Revelation comes quietly in times of stillness when one ponders how to be of use. Revelations comes in the interaction of compassion and the daily news. Revelation rises up in the response to injustice—as it rose up in Moses, in Jesus, in Harriet Tubman, Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa and the ones who have stood up and spoken out for the benefit of others. Revelation is in the air we breathe. It has never changed, It never will. It is always the same. Take care of each other. I am with you and in you.
Speak, O God, your servant is listening
Reflect on the sentence ”Revelation comes in the interaction of compassion and the daily news.”
For God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it.
By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
We often need to lose sight of our priorities in order to see them.
The highest revelation is that God is in everyone.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order the continuous thread of revelation.
Faith in God’s revelation has nothing to do with an ideology which glorifies the status quo.
Sometimes we are limited more by attitude than by opportunities.
