LOVE IS CONCRETE

So to all my free future agents at the bridge. Lets start scribing the gems we glean from our various community gatherings! From writers group to mens group to womens group to journaling, or any time we gather together to jam out, play a game, or have a conversation. Lets use this resource to gather what God speaks to us so we can form songs, liturgies and all around inspiration to live life to the maximum capacity in the mystery of the risen Messiah. Here's some goodness I've gathered recently:

the challenge of selfless love causes us to know more about ourselves and God when we bump up against our limit.-Deborah

there is a deep intense blessing in every hardship. -Tasha (our dear friend who comes over for thurs. night community dinner)

I want to be a gaping hole for God - Tiff

i pray i would not protect myself against the impact of your love. -tiff

How do we authentically live the gospel? Look in each others eyes.- Angie

Its like Christmas morning every time I see you guys. Mariia on sunday morning at the Bridge

Whose fool are you?- Eddy quoting someone he knows

God seems attracted to the ordinary, to simple gestures of humanity. Maybe this is why Jesus hung out with so many everyday schmucks. Maybe this is why he hangs out with me. - Pam

Add in anything that you or someone in our community wrote that speaks of what God is doing in/through/all around us.

Honoring - "taking a story seriously and fighting to have it not perceived as a joke"
Fasting - "invited interruption"
Love - "chosen disadvantage with unexpected results" (as opposed to imposed or inflicted disadvantage)
Patience - "to let things develop on their own"

So, i read the first line of the "Love" chapter like this:

"The chosen disadvantage of letting things develop on their own will produce unexpected results."

Make me wonder if further "redefinition" could help drive a community curriculum/game series..
a meeting to discuss the parr-ticklers of this is in order. Who would be in?

SOMETHING TO PONDER..

“There is plenty of courage among us for the abstract but not for the concrete.” - Helen Keller

“Love, like truth and beauty, is concrete. Love is not fundamentally a sweet feeling; not, at heart, a matter of sentiment, attachment, or being "drawn toward." Love is active, effective, a matter of making reciprocal and mutually beneficial relation with one's friends and enemies. Love creates righteousness, or justice, here on earth. To make love is to make justice. As advocates and activists for justice know, loving involves struggle, resistance, risk.” - Carter Heyward
