All this talk of sacrifice!

No more! I can’t take it!

Sometimes scripture is meant to move us from a comfortable place where we are unchallenged. It then moves us to consider that there are other ways to see God.

Today, I’m reminded that the world is not a friendly or nice place, particularly. We have disease, environmental degradation, racism, inequality, violence, lack of adequate care, etc, etc. The list goes on.

In order for God to make God’s self ONE with us—at-one-ment (atonement)—God must sacrifice a part of God’s self to enter into our world of pain, so that we might not experience as much pain.

For that, I’m thankful. And I have grown a bit today.

Thank you, God, for giving of yourself. Amen.
