Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
Outsiders, Gentiles: these are the wise men, and they are devoted to the Christ whom they come from afar to worship, while the insiders, the people of Jerusalem, and Herod, are troubled. The wise men left behind their homes and came over treacherous terrain expecting to find the Coming One, and with ebullient hearts fell down and worshiped him. So let us shut out the world from our minds and do the same, and give him, as it were, the gold of a faith that knows his divine kingship, the frankincense of a trust in his perfect holiness prepared to offer himself for us, and the myrrh of hearts that believe in the sufficiency of his sacrifice for us. And then let us return by another way, the way of Christ and life in him. Sermon for Epiphany.
