The Proximity Thing

I love to write, I have a story, one of the chapters is called about proximity.

I think about these words often. I want to place myself in the proximity of renewal. I often feel very small, but I know that my life has meaning if I am giving hope to other lives.

A number of years ago, I read the book, God’s Politics, by Jim Wallis. I loved the concepts of bipartisanship he wrote of in his work.

A couple of weeks ago, I picked the book back up. I found this passage…

“Jesus is assuming the social location of his followers will always put them in close proximity to the poor and easily able to reach out to them.”

I wonder if years ago, this sentence settled into my spirit and took up residence there.

God asks more of us. He asks for our proximity, our presence, all of who we are.

I remain committed to aligning everything on this blog to help encourage that journey.
