Brian’s Reflection: Friday, February 4, 2011
Drinking beer is easy. Trashing your hotel room
is easy. But being a Christian, that's a tough call.

he was born on this date, 1948, in Arizona
Yep. Renouncing evil. Emptying yourself in Love. Seeing God and yourself in all other persons. Doing Justice. Loving Mercy. Seeing that power is Service. Loving everyone as yourself. Pushing the bounds of compassion to the ultimate (“Turn the other cheek”). Loving your enemies and praying for them. Knowing you are One with God. Accepting death as part of Life. The List is far longer!
G. K. Chesterton is reported to have said, “Christianity isn’t a failure; it’s just that no one has tried it.”
If you think that the Gospel path is for you , find out what it really is, and give it a try.
