We are predominately spirit, more spirit than flesh, more breath than earth. We are majority spirit, more than a number, made of a substance that cannot be counted.
We are predominately us; there really is no “them,” no human being outside of our shared humanity. We are all strangers, all immigrants, all travelers passing through this world. We are majority neighbor, relative, family, kindred, siblings– despite all of our many rivalries.
We are predominately God’s. We don’t even belong to ourselves as we did not make ourselves; we are not co- creators, co- laborers in the field of humanity. Who has planted us in the earth and who will root us up? We do not actually take care of ourselves. For who gives us breath, His Spirit?
God… is predominately, the majority of us.
