reflection: When in Fisher Park | Matt Logan

The sheep at the Lord’s right hand and the goats at the Lord’s left give Jesus the same answer: “When was it that we saw you in the condition that you said we saw you in?” Notice, the Scripture says that the sheep on the right and the goats on the left give answers, they do not ask questions. Surely the Lord is in THIS neighborhood, but when?

Lord of All, we confess that too often we have seen you hungry and have not fed you. We have seen you naked and have not given you clothes. Give us the vision to see you and the courage to not look away. As our neighborhood gathers around our church, help us wrap our arms around our neighbors. Be with those engaged in the work of neighborly love in Fisher Park. Help us be good neighbors and turn goats into sheep. In the name of the Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Amen.
