Reflections Along the Jesus Way

January 22, 2023 – Quote for the Day

“In both his behavior and his teachings Jesus reached out to the downtrodden, offering healing and grace to all those in bondage.  He pierced through the crippling aggression of the rich and the slavery of religious power brokers.  Jesus flipped the script of what is fair and just, upending traditional ethical assumptions and religious traditions.  The Beatitudes then seemed so illogical and counter-intuitive and they still do.  Jesus’ teaching reveals the eternal and divine value of vulnerability in the face of danger and gentleness in the face of hatred.”
