Dad, are we almost there yet?

Change of Heart Poster (Version 2)Image by Will HaleI hope this blog is a credible attempt at continuing formation for Secular Franciscans. There is a spiritual richness in our face to face meetings and duplicating that may be impossible, especially the humor. Today we discussed the radical Gospel idea of loving your neighbor. The difficulties here are obvious to all of us on the journey, but what struck me was the plain common sense of this command. God finds Jesus in all us kids and that is why we are lovable to Him. To truly share in the Divine we have to stop fighting with our siblings, and like any family, remember we are related. Since we are related to "THE ALMIGHTY" it might make sense to accept all people as the image of Christ, God does. This is a process of transformation, we have flaws and Dad has an answer. Grace and the Holy Spirit. JMJ. Mick
