An Appealing and Frightening Truth

Dear Folks -

I have a T-shirt that says: "God Bless Everybody - No Exceptions."

That is a very appealing concept to me. Everybody is inside the circle of God's love, including all of who we are.

It is also a very frightening concept. Everybody is in? I have to include everybody? Now, that's quite a challenge.

Jesus' second best-known parable, called The Parable of the Good Samaritan, offers us not only a redefinition of who our neighbor is, but also suggests the role the once-despised neighbor can play in bringing us inside the circle of God's love and justice.

That's a summary of what I talked about this week in Ordinary Life.

Much love,

Bill Kerley
