Word of God Sunday

Nehemiah 8:2-6, 8-10; Psalm 19:8-10, 15; 1 Corinthians 12:12-30; Luke 1:1-4, 4:14-21

Fulfilled among us

In the Greek, Luke 1:1-4 is one long sentence in the cultured style of Greek writers. In beginning in this way, Luke signals that the Christian movement is not to hide away but to engage with the world. The phrase “write an orderly account” suggests Luke desires to set out what has “been fulfilled among us” in a way that allows the truth, beauty and transformative experience of the whole story to emerge. In my daily life, how do I engage and dialogue in my cultural context with the gospel story?
