Living love in the face of anger

Dear Heather, It’s so hot outside. The kind of hot that only the Southwest can be in the beginning of May. Your swamp cooler doesn’t help much, and sweat rolls

CHALLENGE Pharisees

One of the things I love about children is how they go through life with the freshest of perspectives and a healthy disregard for dogma and limits. They are constantly asking (though not always verbally), "Can we do this? How about this? Why not this?" As parents, my husband and I pray, ask our parents what they did, read up on what others have done, and then do our best to provide children structure and guidance. What I love is when children, through their beautiful independence and individuality, cause us to pray again to find even fresher and better approaches and solutions, which are especially suited to us. One of the great gifts our son has given me is the reminder that this prayerfully responsive state of being is much more effective than being a "Pharisee" with fixed and rigid rules for everything. Yes, principles and consistency are good for children, but our son consistently teaches me how in-the-moment-inspired-gracious-and-loving implementations of rules have always brought the most harmonious and pleasant results for everyone involved. This brings me back to affirming that God knows and loves us all, and we know and love him in return. God is constantly communicating to each of us what we need to know, what we need to do, and how we need to do it. Plus, God gives us the desire, strength, persistence, and grace to follow through... all in harmony with others. What a wonderful gift! This must part of what led Mary Baker Eddy to say, "Ah, children, you are the bulwarks of freedom, the cement of society, the hope of our race!"
