The lectionary committee seems to want us to read 1 Timothy 1:12-17 and Luke 15:1-10 as the “good news” response to the “bad news” of Jeremiah 4:11-12, 22-28, and Psalm 14!

Today’s scriptures join mysticism and mission, and celebration and challenge. Holistic spirituality transforms our souls, but it also expands our level of concern such that the well-being of others and ourselves is one dynamic reality. The prophetic soul is lively, inclusive, and relational. It embraces otherness as part of our deepest reality. The prophetic soul sees the futures of others as connected with our own futures. Our present commitments to justice and shalom bring health to the futures of others as well as ourselves.
