Thursday Reflection for Week 5

We talked about the Holy Spirit empowering us to create microsocieties with our community of faith, but when we are outside of the community, there are two ways to respond to the outside world: we can choose to witness, or we can choose to be invisible. I think that the latter is far easier. We can retreat behind the walls and into our little bubbles, and everything is just fine and dandy. But is this living? Is it ok to compartmentalize our lives? Do we believe that the Holy Spirit is in every part of our lives, or is He just Lord over the "church" part of it? Has the cynicism that Lasn talks about in Culture Jam also invaded the church and how we see the world around us? I think that perhaps it has, because I can sense a bit of that cynicism within me...
