“Go Out to the World”

Mk. 16:15-18 Feast of St. Paul.  Paul is an example of our calling as Christians: to teach others about Jesus and how he taught us to live our lives in service, in love, and the leave the world a better place than it was when we came.

Last night and today:

I have been sick all day, staying in out of the rain. I had dinner with Stephen tonight and went to the store. Coming home I ran into several people on the street, several of the older ones, who begged, pleaded, I got one some ravoli, the other I gave my change to. I often think how really lucky I have been through the years. I look back, and in my own craziness I have come close, and I still live on the edge, and it is scary. I wonder why some people can make it and others can not. My young friend D is 19 uses speed, and want so badly to make it, but continually moves from one person to another, and continually uses speed.  He can not see that he simply needs to stay in one place and depend on himself. One after another I see, and I look at myself and think there but for the grace of God go I. I listen to what is going on in Haiti and wonder what happens if we have an earthquake, people seem to have little conscious of that possiblity–we all live on the edge and fail to realize it. And so I place my faith in God and will work tomorrow, and just keep on going.

I went to foodbank and get blankets, had lunch with vicki, came home, feeling really lousy, not sure if i am going out. Deo Gratis! Thanks be to God!
