Food for Thought We Are “Those People” Socialist Brene Brown’s TED talk “The Power of Vulnerability” has been viewed more than 10 million times (as of August 2013). For good reason: we are hungry for the freedom to admit our vulnerability. Brown pushes us to embrace our own brokenness, with the reality that we are –or easily could be-just one step away from the broken people all around us. Brown says: We are “those people.” The truth is…we are the “others.” Most of us are one paycheck, one divorce, one drug-addicted kid, one mental health diagnosis, one serious illness, one sexual assault, one drinking binge, one night of unprotected sex, or one affair away from being “those people.” the we don’t trust, the one we pity, the ones we don’t let our children play with, the ones bad things happen to, the ones we don’t want living next door. -Adapted from Elisa Morgan, The Beauty of Broken The physical presence of other Christians is a source of incomparable joy and strength to the believer. . . . The prisoner, the sick person, the Christian in exile sees in the companionship of a fellow Christian a physical sign of the gracious presence of the triune God. Visitor and visited in loneliness recognize in each other the Christ who is present in the body; they receive and meet each other as one meets the Lord, in reverence, humility, and joy. . . . It is true, of course that what is an unspeakable gift of God for the lonely individual is easily disregarded and trodden under foot by those who have the gift every day. -
*Please join us for a time of fellowship right outside the sanctuary.
