Sustaining the Weary (Isaiah 50:4-9a)
Tradition is remembering and experiencing a living history. It’s the way we enter and become a part of a vast commonwealth of pilgrims—past and present who’ve gone before us.
It’s becoming fellow travelers with the millions of those who’ve chosen to try to follow Jesus, and who’ve decided against the promptings of the world and—perhaps even their better judgment—to live by faith.
It’s becoming a part of a community that promises to sustain us with stories and poetry and words when we’re too weary anymore even to shake our heads.
