Compassion

July 15, 2015

How about I just put this here so that I can come back and watch it once a month – or once a week?  Once a day?

What if I could refuse to allow the brutality of my enemy to rob me of compassion for my enemy?  Is that even possible?

What if the power of Holy Communion is not in its ability to somehow conquer death or make me part of a select group?  What if, instead, its power lies in the possibility that, when done well, it is able to nurture compassion and connection across boundaries, re-awakening us to the deep Communion that is at the heart of the universe (and, I would say, the ministry of Jesus)?
