“Family”

Gospel
Lk 8:19-21

The mother of Jesus and his brothers came to him
but were unable to join him because of the crowd.
He was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside
and they wish to see you.”
He said to them in reply, “My mother and my brothers
are those who hear the word of God and act on it.”

Last night was a typical Monday night. Saw only about twenty people, most really fucked up. Alot of thank you for socks. It is still amazing to me after all these years how such a simple thing as a pair of socks can mean so much. They are precious. I went to bed at 2.

In our gospel today Jesus is very clear that those who hear the Word and do not hear it or not his family.  Those who follow him, those who love their God with all of their hearts, minds, and strength and their neighbor as thyself. This is a summary of the Word, whether one believes in Jesus or not–to follow love the neighbor means for Jesus to love him. The mark of God is presence in love of neighbor.

Cooked meal and served around 50 people.  Mostly older tonight. Have been on the street for along time, and yet they persevere.  Watching movie, and will go out and do outreach later. Deo Gratis! Thanks be to God!
