Today is the last day of our week-long Zoom Council of Bishops Spring meeting. Normally we would be together, but we are still living in the lingering impact of Covid. Since we are a global church, there literally are bishops from around the world on their device of choice connecting digitally to the meeting. While that means 8:00 am – 12:00 noon has been the meeting time for me, in some places it’s early morning, others late afternoon and still others night. If I’m honest, I must admit I sometimes find myself assuming everyone is meeting in the morning like me, as my colleagues may sometimes inadvertently assume I’m meeting at the same time of day as them. I’ve discovered that it’s just as easy to fall into the trap of assuming that everyone experiences being a disciple of Jesus Christ the same way I do. That’s why I’m grateful when the Holy Spirit reminds me that someone else’s location, culture, experience and history means I can receive the gift of a richer understanding of what it means to be a Jesus’ follower from others than I otherwise might have on my own.
