  1. Interesting. I concur that there seems to be a lot of people, based on the news, that are out of tune and/or spiritually lifeless in our world.

    Regards and goodwill blogging.

  2. I just to responded to a post about being one with the Spirit (that’s my interpretation) but how do we translate spiritual harmony and flow into something that addresses all of the screams and crying in the world: we tune our musical instruments (our message) to a pitch they can hear…which is what Christ did in the parables. We have to somehow take Christ and play what we know of Him in a way that can be heard by the world.

    Am I making any sense?

  3. I think this shows the importance of context.

    Stripped from the context of Paul’s argument in his letter this passage seems to be about the importance of being uniquely who we are. But in the wider context of Paul’s argument it’s about being understood. He’s writing about the gift of tongues and how certain people felt because they had the gift of tongues that somehow made them more spiritually alive than the rest of us. And he asks: how can any of us benefit from their spiritual gift if they don’t speak in a way that we can understand? We are expressions of God’s love in this world. Sisters and brothers of Jesus. We are never alone any of us because God speaks in and through us to others around us.

    How can we live this in our world?
