Sacred Threads provides opportunities to
explore and enrich the spiritual journey for people of all faith traditions.
While our major purpose is women’s spirituality, our broader mission is to create and strengthen the sacred threads that connect us all.
AN ADVENT OF REFLECTION Adapted from Abiding Word by Barbara Reid
Sunday Reflections for Year A
It is natural to wonder from time to time (especially when our energy is low and exhaustion sets in) if our efforts, hard work and all the things we juggle in life are really worth it? How often have I asked myself: have I accomplished in my life all that I had hoped to do? Or: what is missing in my life?
In Matthew’s gospel,(11: 2-11) we see John the Baptist in prison. What might be going through his mind as he comes face to face with the end of his ministry, the end of his life?
Could he be asking the same questions we struggle with? Was the work he was doing to prepare the way for Jesus worth it all? Look where it got him!
In the midst of his dilemma, given his closeness to Jesus, might he not have reflected on those memorable moments of the poor being uplifted by the compassion of the One who was to come? Might he not have been comforted by the fact that people’s lives were restored….the blind saw, the lame walked, the sick were healed.
Isaiah (35: 1-6a) calls us to be filled with joy and gladness even in our most challenging and devastating moments in life. Why? Could it not be that often in the parched moments of life that that glimmer of hope springs forth.
During this season when life can become more frenetic at the Malls, might we find the need to take quiet time to ask ourselves: what’s missing in my life? Are my efforts and hard work making a difference to anyone?
Might it not be refreshing in the parched moments to take time to look for God‘s healing and restorative presence?
OUR VISION: We create together what we need based on new models of inclusion, collaboration & empowerment.
