"For behold, the Kingdom of God is among you."
As I continue to reflect on the events of this week, the more I see that we are to be the change we seek in this world. We can't look to anything around us to be just or right, but only to ourselves to love and BE the Kingdom of God here and now. Fr. Richard Rohr offered a much-needed prayer yesterday and part of it said,
"If you are indeed a Suffering God, may we hold this suffering with You..." (Richard Rohr, 11/9/16)
There is much suffering all over the world, not just in our own land. Our God doesn't cause suffering or even fix suffering, but indeed, suffers with us. All we have to do is look to the cross and see that God suffers with us. God also commissions us to go out to comfort and ease the suffering of others. God relies on us to be the good we seek. Thankfully, God also will gift us with what we need to do that...we just need to ask and invite God into our hearts. Love, heidi
