These frames give us an important insight into our life in Christ. Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber shares that Communion is important to our life because Jesus comes to us in “stuff.” We experience the presence of Christ in the ordinary food stuff at Holy Communion and the Holy Spirit in the ordinary stuff of water.
Because of these frames of experience, we recognize the reality that God comes to us in the ordinary every day mode of our existence. We continually are reminded about God’s presence with us as the incarnate one, Jesus Christ, the one who came as the ordinary miracle of a baby.
We frame the reality of God in ordinary stuff so we see God in the everyday people we meet. We see Jesus Christ in the faces we see and the places we go. We are framing this world as God’s world. We are continuing the work of Jesus Christ, to bring God’s Kingdom near.
