“Jesus dares us to imagine that we can learn to handle the challenges of our relationships in new ways. Though I’ll admit, it’s much easier to embrace ‘love your neighbor’ as a lofty platitude than as a practical mandate. The situations we actually face are often confusing… Real community happens with people who know us too well, who, despite all they know and the ways we disappoint them, still see our dignity and keep believing that we are being transformed by love.” Mark Scandrette, Practicing the Way of Jesus: Life Together in the Kingdom of Love
