We Are One

Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18

We are like trees, if we identify our life with the public part–we will not be able to withstand the storms of life and will have no resources for profound growth. Our actions, our lives emerge from a rich darkness, silende, and stillness. In reading THE HELP, a novel about racism in the 60’s, it took me home to the South, and I remember the black ladies who took care of me, Lucy, in particular, how she encouraged me in my call to ministry and the last thing she told me was “when you put your hand to the plow of preaching the Gosple,don;t look back Mister River” , and I have not looked back. A phrase from the book sums it up: “Wasn’t that the point of the book? You women to realize. We are just two people. Not that much separates us. Not nearly as much as I thought. Nothing separates us–accept our egoes. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
