Respecting the awesome power of words!

Instead

lee l mckinney 4Photo by Lee Lindsey McKinney

Liberation, like grace,
when advocated by humans,
always has limits.

At some point in the story
of our history and community
we all draw a line;

a mark in the sand to which
we are wholly oblivious,
until someone on the other side
points it out.

Christianity attempts to follow
the narrative of the God-Human;
the only one whose love
was unlimited; the one
who drew expansive circles,
instead.

  1. Circles, not lines, not borders. How wonderful.
