Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Pentecost 15 – The gospel story for the day points to a fundamental human desire, a desire for health and wellbeing that are not inhibited by illness and disease. We need to recognise the path that leads to the wholeness and oneness of who we are, despite the fragility and mortality ever before us. Look at the paralympians: they lead rich and rewarding lives despite their disablilities, and they refuse to be defined by what others see as their impediments. We are all interconnected, and what we do for others we are also doing for ourselves. Love passed on to others becomes the most meaningful form of self-love; even care for the earth and its inhabitants becomes care for oneself. Encounter strangers not as threats but as part of oneself. All we need is to be resourceful with what we have, little though it might be. May God bless us on our journey to the deep, wonderful wholeness of love.
Mark 7: 24-37
