A Charlois Pastoral Reflection

Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness,”                                    Genesis 1: 26a

What does it mean to be made in the image of God?  To answer that question, we need to know God in His totality.  He is all in all, creator and sustainer, love embodied in its purest form.  We must not forget that He is one in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

This is what we want to focus on.  Everything that is, comprises of three parts; a consciousness that is in control, a physical that gives substance, and a spirit that provides the life force.  In that way we are one with the universe, interconnected in all ways.  As such, we need to support all aspects of creation.

Throughout scripture there are references to care for one another, the less fortunate.  If the universe is filled with abundance we need not fear not getting enough; in fact there is so much available we can never give it all away.

So, in your days be grateful and share with others.  As you give so shall you receive.

God’s peace to us all.
