Church of Christ Congregational (UCC), Norfolk, CT

“Jesus, in this Gospel story as he does just about every time we’re willing to read and listen to what he does everywhere else, defies our expectations. He turns our world lovingly on its head. He defies every norm that we might try to establish and codify.”

“One of the key teachings that the Revolutionary Love Project tries to embody and live as a practice is to love others to the extent that we see no strangers, no strangers. When you meet a stranger the practice becomes repeating this understanding that you are a part of me that I do not yet know, and then to listen to their story with wonder. It’s a recipe for unity beyond all labels. It’s a recipe that fits, I believe, beautifully with the life and ministry and calling of Jesus Christ and for those of us who take on the name of his disciples.”
