I found Bishop Lee's reflection deeply moving. I find that we as clergy talk about openness and vulnerablity, about an embracing and loving God but we live a life of paradox. We clergy type are some of the most guarded and closed characters around. Perhaps this Advent season we crack our hearts open just a bit to experience the wideness of God' mercy.

Thanks for this Jeffrey. Your story about Jonathan will be a central part of my Christmas Eve sermon this year.
