    Too many great reads today! However, the article on wounded warriors and healers hit home. It made me think of Paul’s statement in 1 Cor 9:19-23, that he had become all things to all men so that by all possible means he might save some. I think, as we become more attuned to the needs of others, we become more empathetic as we reflect on our own suffering and experiences (if we are open to this). Something in my own experience/suffering may be helpful to you. An example that comes up at school all the time is “I don’t have homework because I left it at the other parent’s home.” I can smile back and say that i used to have the same problem, and there are ways to help my student remember. It’s a little thing, but it can really encourage a ten year-old.

    On reading the news and not sacrificing your mental health–
    The above link is a reporter blaming the “woke left” for a school district canceling their annual Halloween parade. She offers no evidence, but she never mentions that the majority of people who don’t celebrate Halloween are the people on the religious right. It gave me a good laugh.

    We can just blame anything we don’t like on the woke now.

    Sin? (on YouTube)
    A fair question is what ‘sins’ are we talking about?
    Jay-walking, theft, murder?
    I no longer buy into the same – old – same – old ; that God cannot tolerate anything but perfection, and that all ‘sin’ is the same and separates me from God.
    As a father and a grandfather, I don’t demand perfection from my progeny, and so long as they do the best with what they’ve got, I’m happy.
    I hope that the Almighty feels the same about me.

    I’m handing out candy to the kids in my neighborhood with joy and love towards them and their parents. Spent too long being legalistic about the whole thing, but I respect and love the brethren who choose to do otherwise.
