Dear Folks -
The title I gave the “life talk" I offered in Ordinary Life this week is “Rescuing Jesus From Christianity.” My contention is that if we can see him as the Jewish wisdom teacher he is and not as a white, male citizen of the United States; perhaps his teachings will have more relevance for us and, thus, contribute to our psychological and spiritual growth. I give some examples of how this “capturing of Jesus” shows up in our culture and then focus on the teaching of his that is, perhaps, the most misunderstood of all his teachings: “render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto God what is God’s.”
One of the keys in doing psychological and spiritual work is moving from being taught what to look for to simply being free and willing to see what is.
