Jesus took the ordinary and made it extraordinary, just as he does in Holy Communion.
The story of the Gerasene demoniac appears to be something quite out of the ordinary.
Christ Jesus is God's invitation to us to step up and start a spirit-filled, revelatory fellowship with heaven.
Lord, we are not worthy to receive you, but only say the word, and we shall be healed.
God gave His son to the world because of His love for the world, all of it and all that was in it.
However badly we betray our divine heritage, we do not lose that which makes us children of God.
The Word is Emmanuel, God with us.
Let us keep up the good work of being open to welcoming all that children are and bring to us.
We can join Christ in building the Kingdom of God by serving the homeless, trafficked, poor and refugee.
