03/19/17 Wholehearted: Unwanted
To be seen. To be known. To be wanted.
Homily from the Third Sunday of Lent.
Because of the wound against trust that has come into all of our hearts, it is difficult to be vulnerable. It is challenging to be vulnerable before other people. And it is incredibly challenging to be vulnerable before God. Because we all know that one can only be loved if a person is beautiful, healthy, strong… “whole”. Due to this, we all carry around a temptation to shame. Only when our shame is named and we allow Jesus to call us out of the shame can we step towards living whole-heartedly.
