"The Lord Needs It"


Common Ground hosted a special visitor at Bible Study yesterday—The Right Reverend Rob Wright!  Bishop Wright led our discussion of Luke’s gospel passage telling the story of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem.  We shared ideas about blessings in the story.  We shared ideas about what captured our imaginations.  We asked ourselves:  “What does the Lord need from us?” 

We shared stories about the struggles of life, the dangerous and hurtful experiences we have lived.   We shared our stories of pain and suffering and mental illness.  We remembered the human Jesus, the Jesus who walked on the earth just like us.


And, because we know Jesus walked the earth as human just like us, we imagine he sometimes laughed and had fun, too.  So, we ended our time together with our traditional silly photo.


Thanks for visiting, Bishop Rob!
