Reconciliation Series Pt. 1

Image
It is still much in order to express celebratory tones of congratulations to Jamaica, the place that I have made my home since 1998 and had always admired from my primary school days on her Jubilee independence anniversary. 

When the noise of the proposed celebrations began to increase in decibels earlier this year two things jumped out at me like a compressed spring suddenly released. One was the question of the extent to which the church in Jamaica would find in this year's celebration an occasion to connect the dots of history for her youth members and adherents in a context where everything about the way their world is ordered elevates the here and now.  The other was the palpable silence of the church on the usage of the term jubilee and the attendant mass ignorance of her constituents to the depth and superlative implications for life in community that this Hebrew concept and practice implied.

It was therefore with intense joy that I learned of the plans and subsequently sh…

Reconciliation With Those Who Wounded Us
Series Review: ·The need for all humans to be reconciled to God because of Sin ·The barriers to reconciliation that Jesus broke down ·The need to be reconciled with each other
As far as being reconciled to each other is concerned Jesus had much to say on the matter.  It occupied a central part of his most notable sermon, the Sermon on the Mount: Blessed are the peace makers, turn the other cheek, go two miles, give your cloak also and his most often quoted line forgive us our sins,as we have forgiven those who have sinned against us.

Teddy was tired.
He was returning from a physical which his girlfriend ordered and he finally had given up fighting her.
What the doc had just told him was chilling.
Lose 50 pounds in the next year or you will be dead.
When he returned home, his girlfriend was gone as well.
After years of living together, Glory decided that today would be the final straw.
But why today?
Hadn’t Teddy complied with her wish that he finally take charge of his weight problem?
The fact is that Teddy had no idea what to do.
And he was still 100 pounds overweight and now he was without the woman he loved so much.
Dr. Mudd was a waste.
What was it with American doctors who recommended you lose 100 pounds and then shoo you out of their office.
Were all doctors personality drop outs?

Did they have such a difficult time getting along with others that their only choice, if smart enough, was to enter the field of medicine?
Teddy was depressed and all he felt like doing was sleeping.
He finally awoke in a filthy a…
