There are probably few if any among us who can’t recite “the Golden Rule” that summarizes God’s law in Jesus’ words. Some of us can probably also receive the very similar, but perhaps more inclusive version of this command as the Chinese philosopher Confucius spoke it. What may be less familiar is the way in which Jesus expounded on it so that we practice love even more fully. This Sunday, we will look at the practice of love when we are challenged to love those with whom we disagree or even whom we would call enemies. What does that look like? What might forgiveness look like in such a call to love more deeply?
Love and peace to you all, Pastor Lisa
