Comment policy: ESA represents a wide variety of understandings and practices surrounding our shared Christian faith. The purpose of the ESA blog is to facilitate loving conversation; please know that individual authors do not speak for ESA as a whole. Even if you don\'t see yourself or your experience reflected in something you read here, we invite you to experience it anyway, and see if God can meet you there. What can take away from considering this point of view? What might you add? The comments section below is where you can share the answers to those questions, if you feel so moved. Please express your thoughts in ways that are constructive, purposeful, and respectful. Give those you disagree with the benefit of the doubt, and assume they are neither idiots nor evil. Name-calling, sweeping condemnations, and any other comments that suggest you have forgotten that we are all children of God will be deleted. Thank you!

    This strikes me as the kind of writing we need lots more of. Some years ago I was in bed for a month with a torn leg muscle and decided to spend the time learning what the Bible really said about “loving our neighbors” (including, of course, North Koreans for one of many). That study changed my life. And my politics. Actually I’m still working on it a bit – my family feels God is still going to give us a few more experiences He wants included. (I’ve tried to enliven it with stories of real-life experiences). But if you might be interested in seeing it, I can either print you a copy in its present form (about 160 pages) , or, if you have an email address where I could send that much at once, that’d be fine, too, if it interests you. Let me know. And best wishes.
