Life is often a pattern of behaviors, life’s outcomes are the result of a pattern of behavior. This is not to say we are to beat ourselves up forever more. If you look at the scriptures, if you look at writing of poets, each has a style, a pattern of writing and anyone who knows literature can spot whose work it is pretty quickly if you present it without the author’s name. On many levels life has patterns, relationships have patterns, we have patterns, The Trinity and how they operate, deal with things, also that has a pattern, and there is a DNA of apostolic history, of Patriarchy which God instituted, Christ upheld and women are to be a part of, in different ways, ways that matter, but not in the pattern that modern feminism insists. Most things have some kind of pattern to them, the pattern can be constructive in our lives and society or not. If we look at the shift of DNA in society with gender fluidity etc…, all of the shifts, trying to make God, Mother etc…, breakdown of tradition, of family, community close knit, can we say the shifts are constructive to lives and to society as a whole? What about our own lives? What patterns are we continuing that perhaps are destructive and not in congruence with sacred boundaries etc…? Something to think about.
Shalom and Amen
