Here To Do The Work
"I don’t know what the outcome of our work will be. In terms of, will I produce the right amount of justice, freedom, and peace? Will I personally participate in the work enough that I’ve earned my status as Christian, as Beloved? But the gospel today tells me to get rid of that fear. To drop my judgment. To cease from trying to figure out who deserves what. And simply to roll up my sleeves while I have my breath in my lungs and do the work God has given me to do. Trusting that in that work I will be participating with you, participating with God in the work that needs to be done in this world. The work of love and healing, of freedom and peace, of justice and reconciliation. This is the work that God gives us to do and this is the work we participate with God in."
