It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Reflecting on 2 Corinthians 4:16-5:10

My paraphrase: We're getting older and our bodies are deteriorating. Yet, we are confident that things will get better when we move from here to go to where God is. Luke Timothy Johnson says it much better, "The apostles hope for a future glory; they do not enjoy it now....(S)uffering is meaningful for the future...They feel the anguish of being pulled between the desire for God and the need to serve others."
