Many Voices One Mission: Partners
By Karen Ziel, Minister of Faith Formation and Leadership for the CT Conference, UCC.
Then the angels asked God, “Is the world finished yet?” and God answered, I don’t know. Go ask my partners!”* This last sentence from the story, Partners by Rabbi Marc Gellman (as midrash) has a big impact. Partners is a creation story in which the angels are flustered by the messy-ness of creation and ask God to help. God continually points the angels in the direction of those with whom they can partner, to little avail. The last line is comical and powerful. I can imagine God in the most frustrated and flustered of voices; I don’t know, Go ask my partners! Our partnership in God’s creation and re-creation is a central theme of our discipleship. That we are not asked to do it alone, nor could we do much of it alone, is also central to our journey as disciples in the way of Jesus. Let’s explore a few ideas about partnership.
