Looking for God in messy places
A crucial, sometimes overlooked character.
Love is our essence and our destiny. Love of God. Love of neighbor. Love of self. Love even of our enemy.
We brought home a healthy baby. Others made funeral plans.
God’s love makes each of us one of a kind. And that same love makes us all one.
Jesus wasn’t content with temporarily reducing the suffering of a few individuals. He asked the sort of question that makes people nervous. Even angry. “Why are there so many hungry people? So many homeless people? So many untreated sick people?”
What we will make of our lives together on this planet will be guided by what we worship as God.
