I have tried for a long time to get a sense or an insight into the meaning of the words: "the new confession, the new faith", and also: "with these words godhead is given again to Man". Why in the Offering?
Last Sunday during the Service it was as if I heard a father speak to his son, whom he sends into the world: "Sick is the dwelling into which you, my own son enter...but through your word, your bearing, the human soul and all life will be healed". And I thought then, that God - in the words of the Act of Consecration- actually confesses anew His love for His creation, the human life and being, and I thought further that "the new faith" is, therefore, our only adequate answer to Him, who offered His substance, His Son to us.
The thoughts are comforting to me in today's world, where nothing much makes sense anymore, and we are verily all in this together.
