January 24, I Sam. 24:3-21; Mk. 3:13-19 “Ten Thousand Faces”

My volunteers come and go; some tell me “this is boring,” because I spend a lot of time simply listening; And it is in the listening that the magic occurs, the magic of people being touched, feeling loved–Mike was so lonely last night, listening to him for 20 minutes he was a changed human being.  Gerald Hopkins wrote: “Christ–for Christ plays in ten thousand places, lovely in limbs and lovely in eyes not his To the Father through the feature’s of humanity’s faces.” In each person there is the Christ, the divine.

I am often asked if I am “happy”, and I usually give a smart ass remark, because happiness in our society means being up all the time. The truth of the matter is I am content, very content, comfortable in my own skin, with who I am and what I do. To me contentment, and comfortability is what brings true and lasting happyness.  Deo Gratias! Thankis be to God!

Spiritual teachings of our interconnectedness and the vegan ethic of universal compassion, besides being vital and transformative, are in profound alignment with the core instruction of the world’s religions, which is to love others. Dr. Will Tuttle
