Business travelers, more often than not, are solo artists in the flight line. But we, like the church at Galatia, are members of a community of the Spirit. We are bound to one another in a way that random travelers, thrown together by a coincidence of flight schedules, cannot be. We can bear one another's burdens, we can thus "fulfill the law of Christ" as Paul describes it, but that shared burden is what also enables each of us to answer a unique call to the work of the Spirit.
The Spirit, the eternal pneuma, is calling us to live, to be guided, to restore, to be gentle, to share, to sow. NOW is the time for us not to weary of all the things that weigh upon us, all the contentiousness that the media feast upon, and keep moving forward to work for the good of all.
