Shame on you! You're God's children - put some clothes on! You are sacred and beloved. Clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness and patience. Put up with each other. If someone gossips about you, forgive them - just as your Father has forgiven you, so too must you forgive your brothers and sisters by holy fiat. Wear your finest clothes! Dress yourself in love, for love goes with everything.
Surrender your hate and fear to the peace of Christ, for you are together his incarnate body. You are Emanuel!
Let Christ's words live abundantly in you and through you. Mentor and coach each other.
Release your hoarded gratitude with joyous songs of the heart, painful psalms, binding and instructing hymns, cleansing and freeing spirituals.
But whatever you do, be it word or act, do it in Jesus' name and give thanks to your Father.
And put some clothes on! We don't want to see your nasty bits...
(Colossians 3:12-17 retold)
