On the Sixth Day of Christmas 2011-2012
Christians believe in reincarnation.
Now that I have your attention, let me explain what I mean.
Christmas is all about the Incarnation, about the gracious mystery of God in the flesh, about the great truth that in Jesus of Nazareth the fullness of God was pleased to dwell.
Pentecost, which will be here before we know it, is all about the empowering of the Church by the Spirit of God to be the people of God; through the presence of the Spirit of Christ in and among us we become the Body of Christ in the world.
The Church is, therefore, the continuing Incarnation; we are the continuing presence of Christ in the world.
Thus, we not only believe in reincarnation—we experience it and live it!
How are we experiencing and living out our reincarnation? How are people experiencing Christ in us?
On this Sixth Day of Christmas, may God show us how to be the Body of Christ in the world…
