Today I will spend the morning with a parish group considering Jesus not only as our Messiah and Redeemer but also how he is also a teacher of wisdom, a model for us in our seeking to live life from a deeper center of being. During the morning, in addition to some factual information, I will ask participants to reflect on two sets of questions:
- What do we know about Jesus? How do we know what we know? and
- How well do you know Jesus? Where and when did you meet him?
The difference is, of course, between knowing from outside sources and knowing from the inside, from our experience. I would invite everyone to join in the reflection this morning as a way to get in touch with the state of our relationship, to take a further step companioning Jesus on the road to Jerusalem – and perhaps to find him already at the center of our hearts.
