Choosing and Re-choosing My Humanity
I’m far more interested in becoming the human being I’m created to be than I am in becoming religious.
My life has at its core a series of choosings and re-choosings of Jesus as the one who I follow in the work of becoming a true human being.
This is my supreme fascination: Jesus as a human being in order to come near us.
We become human in order to come near others who are also struggling to become more human.
I have learned from Jesus how to be human, and in so doing how to be a giving human being, marked by a generosity of heart and soul. Others can detect my giving by how they experience me as a human being.
What matters is whether the melody, the song of grace, is resonating in my heart. If it is, others will sense it as they experience me as a human being.
As Jesus said, “If they receive you they receive me.”
