A Meditation on Faith: Bearing Witness

Another reblog from Frank J. Peter’s series: Meditation on Faith. The message is clear and unequivocal, but I’m reblogging also as a counter to those who take exception to these kinds of reminders. We need reminding because, honestly folks, as rank and filers, we are not nice people and we seriously need to rethink the way we are proceeding in life… in general. I have a lot to say about man’s inhumanity to man, but I know that the best “witnessing” I do is when I join hands with people I have little in common with to (at this time) help rebuild houses destroyed in natural disasters. If I didn’t involve myself thus, I would not be able to say a damn thing. We do, we change ourselves, THEN we can put up our hand and ask for permission to speak.

Asking “What sermon do I want to give?” is so much easier than asking “What example do I want to set?”

    Ah, the automorphing suits the purpose feel good Jesus. Again. The Catholics, evil as they have been cast, end the Mass with “Go and serve the Lord by your life.” I would suggest, by the word count of your replies as opposed to the suggestion of this post, that you rediscover the reality of two ears and one mouth. Go. And do. Read Mathew 6, get back to me.
