Be Love

My book club is reading Bob Goff’s “Everybody Always – Becoming Love in a World Full of Setbacks and Difficult People.” It’s a departure from our usual novels, historical fiction, the occasional sci fi or memoir. I read most of it when it first came out in 2018.

I’m enjoying reading it again and looking forward to discussing it next week. I know a couple of ladies have loved it and I’m not sure what the reaction of such an overtly Jesus book will be from some.

One quote that has stuck with me that applies to our current situation is this:

“What often keeps us from loving our neighbors is fear of what will happen if we do.”

That’s a real fear today in this pandemic. But still, God calls us to be love. To love people for who they are not what they do. And who they are, I believe is: beloved child of God, created in God’s image.

May we move beyond our fear (while still being smart, wear a mask, practice physical distancing, stand up for the vulnerable) and be love.

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 10:00 for our worship gathering via the livestream. God is present in this sacred time with you and with me, in our sacred spaces.

Grace be with you,
