Listen (Reblog)

I’ve been writing some (slightly) more traditional homilies over on a blog I share with my sister, where she’s been doing sermons. (The main difference for me is that homilies are short and less academic compared to sermons.) Just once a month, so there aren’t many yet. But here’s a bit from my latest, a reflection on 1 Kings 19.

Our reaction to tragedy is often very loud, if not in a physical sense then in a spiritual and emotional one. And that makes sense. We’re hurting, we’re angry, we’re scared. God knows this about us, is with us in those emotions. But it can be hard to hear her over the noise. When we’re ready, when the need to cry and yell and retaliate pass, we find God where she’s always been, within our own hearts and minds.
