Sacrificial transformation

Author ucclbb, Written Aug 25, 2015


We sometimes forget that while science and reason are valuable resources, faith always asks a little more from us than just accepting the facts. Faith calls us to consent to dying. Not just physical death, but spiritual transformation. This is the topic of yesterday’s lectionary verses from John. As Baptist minister Chuck Queen aptly puts it: “For spiritual growth to occur there is always a descending and ascending, there is always death and resurrection, there is always a letting go. In order to journey to a new place we always have to leave something behind.
