Celebrating the great variety in being human...

Some amazing conversations sat drinking coffee this weekend @suttonsachurch, one of which that rumbled on for two days! with a break in between mind! One in particular centred on some of the negative impressions of Christianity, not least the appearance of judgementalism that seems to be the experience of many. This particular woman made pertinent point after pertinent point as to her observations, really all could offer was an apology! 

Nouwen's daily email had a lesson for us all today ...

"Only when we fully claim that God loves us in an unconditional way and look at "those other persons" as equally loved can we begin to discover that the great variety in being human is an expression of the immense richness of God's heart.  Then the need to prejudge people can gradually disappear."
