Sunday, August 25 - Eternal

Erin Padgett

“For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens”. Body concern. It haunts us. Am I too _____ (what did you put in the space?). Am I sick? Am I old? The “I” is deceiving because that body is just the earthly tent you live in. It’s not “you”. Even the condition of your body is not “your” condition, but we think that way. “Who will deliver us from this body of death?” The scripture would call that “victory”.

Sunday, August 4 - Premeditatio Malorum

Erin Padgett

Premeditatio Malorum or “What’s the Worst That Could Happen”? Greek philosophy blended with the Christian faith early. We see that blend and wonder even in the formation of our current scripture. However, on the above question, scripture and philosophy differ. Stoics in particular were taught to meditate on the worst that could happen. The Scripture on the other hand reassures us of God’s watch, care, and providence over us that is past our understanding. We can trust in God’s care for us in all circumstance. My prayer for you on this Sunday is to “Trust in the Lord with all your Heart and Lean Not on your own understanding”.
