    This is really cool, David. Thanks for the summary – it’s a great reminder and good for refection. I really like your perspective of being a pastor not an activist. I sometimes feel like we are all expected to be the activist and this reminder is awesome – we should follow what God puts on our own hearts when it comes to – well, everything, including Justice. How am I doing? Good! Thanks for asking.

    Thank you David. Great questions. Right order.
    How is it going? Hmmm…
    This can be a tricky question particularly in church circles. If we answer “bad” that can be seen as the wrong answer and invoke a sense of failure. If we answer “good” that can invoke a sense of pride or achievement in the spiritual life. Both answers can entrench us ways of being that can unwittingly hinder spiritual growth rather than propel us to greater maturity.

    I have yet to meet a single Christian, or read about heros of the faith, who “nail it” in all these areas. I only have to examine my own life to see the reality of this. Humility is the queen virtue here that is indispensable to consider these questions rightly, recognizing we cannot do anything to have God love us less and there is always a next step for us to walk in greater fidelity.
