As I have mentioned before my icon painting courses always get me to reflect on life and God. Just the other day when I was in church around the time of Eucharist my thoughts turned to small kernels of corn.
When the apostle John states that the “Word become flesh” it is jarring, how can that be? Doctrine encourages us to believe He, Jesus is the One, the game changer, having come from outside time and space, no holding back, the whole Kahuna. This love Christ emits travels beyond death. This Christ love was for all of humanity, to enrich our lives and show us the way back to the garden of delight. .
The other day I was at mass just at the moment of the Eucharist where we receiver the host. That little flat wafer, into my mouth it went, down my throat etc. I love it! And all I could think of was, WOW if that little morsel of pure divinity could just change me! Presto! Silly childish thoughts perhaps, but as I was walking back to my seat I was thinking about the Mayan Corn God. Their understanding of Gods greatness is venerated for having given corn to the world, those divine kernels were cast out from the first cob and replanted and eaten and shared over generations since the beginning of time. Are Christians celebrating anything so different? Seems to me we are all connected like corn, sent into the world to be shared over generations !
I AM WHO I AM, THE GOD WHO CAUSES TO BE………..
