Self Image – Creation Time

On the First Sunday of Creation time we begin with ourselves.  For our good intentions to come to fruition we must take responsibility for our heart. In Mark’s Gospel we read:  “This people honours me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me”  

 

James reminds us not to forget the self image which is a mirror to our actions.  Therefore, do not deceive the heart, but nurture it in order that we might care for the whole of the creation.  This begins with a contemplative seeing of what is there, not just what we expect.  Read Richard Rohr – ‘Just this’
