Bringing Caring Into The World

Our role, largely, is as conduits, bringing caring into the world.  That role entails a journey to the margins where need exists.  AND in journeying to those margins,  creating a new center there.

So the journey of caring is not a journey out to the margins and then a retreat back to the center.  It is instead a pilgrimage.  A journey of discovery.  A journey to a new home.  That I believe is largely the lived message of Christianity.

And Emanuel Swedenborg was emphatically clear … we ignore this journey, as churches, to our own detriment.

The end of a church comes when there is no faith because there is no caring.

The journey to the margins around an axis of caring takes many forms.  But all those varied forms share a constant … caregiving.

The margins, the call to caregiving, in truth, are never far from us.

  1. I and my buddies have been taking note of the excellent ideas on your web page and then all of a sudden I got a horrible feeling I never thanked the website owner for them. All the young men happened to be for this reason warmed to read them and have now very much been tapping into these things. We appreciate you genuinely considerably accommodating and then for choosing such incredible subjects most people are really eager to be informed on. Our own honest apologies for not saying thanks to earlier.
