Reflection for the Week- September 28th 2009

A sign of reluctance may be a virtue, not a lack of conviction. Pastoral sensitivity is careful to seek to meet people where they are. This is far from relativism and closer to compassionate community. We all face life in the midst of death, hope in the midst of despair, joy in the midst of sadness, and courage in the midst of fear. Demanding that “in the midst of” disappear will destroy tension and our arrogance will rob us of the truth.
