Reflection for the Week - November 12

God invites us out of the bomb shelter of safety and into the battle for life. Self protection, while appropriate in many circumstances, can be a one dimensional and destructive cycle that prevents us from encountering an-other. Depriving the other of oneself and guarding oneself from the other becomes deceptively secure within insecurity. Yep, secure in one’s own insecurity. Breaking down the walls of falsehood is a formidable task, but the call to relate and connect draws us into a world of reality, love, and truth that knows no end. Engage and choose life – it’s costly, but it’s worth it.
