May 23, “Girolamo Savonarola” “Not Another Day in Guantanamo”

“Friendship”  John 15:12-17 ‘Put your life on the line for your friends.”

It makes people nervous when I call my guys my friends, because friendship connotes a responsibility to care and provide for, it denotes a commitment in which you give away a part of your self.  It is in that giving that new life comes, and I give my life, all my being for my guys, it hurts, it tears me to pieces like the Veleveteen Rabbitt, but it is in giving that one finds life.  

We need to move to be friends with everyone for in so doing we see them as human beings. Today is another day of witnessing against the tortue of Guantamo Bay, a witness agains the imprisonment of “people who have been charged with no crime on a piece of land that is not a part of our country.”

Come be their friend and join us at Powell and Market from 4:30  p.m.-6:00 p.m. and/or write your SenatorRepresenatative, and the President to close Guantanamo.

Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!

When we contemplate our tastes, we can see how conditioned they actually are. More importantly, though, we can see how utterly unsupportable they are as reasons to commit violence against defenseless, feeling beings. Self-centered craving for pleasure and fulfillment at the expense of others is the antithesis of the Golden Rule and of every standard of morality.. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
