Exhaling

We call God by the sounds of a breath because of the mystery and gratitude humans have had for breath. One need not live too long before figuring out that without breath life ends.  Even Christians call the Holy Spirit “The Breath (or wind) of God.” 

Road Trip!

“They were expecting Jesus to pause and say, “Finally, a good Jew came by…” or, “Finally, a lawyer came by…” That would have held up a mirror of recognition to his listeners. They would have thought. “Oh, I’m a good Jew… I would have stopped to help the man too!” But, that is not what Jesus said. Instead, Jesus called them a bad name. He called them Samaritans! (Did you hear the collective gasp?)”
