I wanted to share with you a post I contributed to the Charis Ministries’ blog:
I am currently reading a book by Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M. called Everything Belongs. This passage struck me:
As I read this, I am reminded of the gospel reading a couple of weeks ago about Jesus’ baptism. The passage from Matthew ended with, “And a voice came from the heavens, saying, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”
Fr. Richard Rohr challenges us to put our identity in Christ. He challenges us each to accept that we are God’s beloved children.
What does this say to us as individuals? If we accept that all are God’s beloved children and everything belongs, how does this call us to live our life? What must we change in order to truly live a life where “everything and everyone belongs”?
