It’s not an accident that in the Gospel story, in both of the parables, they are about seeking. When one of the sheep is lost, who does not leave the 99 and go after the one that is lost until it is found? And when it is found there is joy. Or what woman having 10 silver coins and loses one doesn’t light a lamp and sweep the house and go out and seek and search until it is found? We are called to go out and find, our friends, not just simply to be here, to smile warmly at those who come in the doors into our midst, but we are called to go out, to get out, to open our doors, open our lives, to bring the spirit of God more and more alive.
