Divine Things

Date: August 31, 2014Liturgical Day: The Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 17A)

the wisdom of God set your mind on divine things a new way to live

Summary: In this morning's Gospel lesson, Jesus makes it clear to Peter (and to us) that we are to set our minds on divine things (not human things). This isn't an easy task, but it has to do with a commitment to stay ready to be surprised,  to stay grounded in God's word, to stay connected to other believers, and to stay aware of the needs of others. As we grow in our ability to do this, we become more aware of the presence of God in our world and in our lives.
