Pentecost +6 – Year A
To what end are you living? This is more than a purpose statement that its not about you. Whether you use G*D language or something larger, for what will you stand in the face of others telling you to sit down, to be bluffed into silence?
There is not a way to take ourselves out of this equation called life. Whether we are images of G*D or have become same, whether children of Ishmael or Isaac or another tradition entirely, we are to be on one another's side as we grow up together in this and every wilderness.
So, look one another in the eye and show kindness – the kind of kindness that revels in living beyond the limitations handed us and expands what we know as family.
