What God does seems foolish, but it's wiser than our way of thinking

The Peace Pulpit: Think about another way of being a disciple that isn't so popular in our country. That is reaching out to those refugees at our border and loving them, welcoming them.


Humility is an attempt to see ourselves honestly

The Peace Pulpit: Humility is an attempt to see ourselves as gifted people made by God with virtues and gifts that we can nurture and develop. We must remember: Whatever gifts we have, they are from God.


Keep your eyes on Jesus to pass through that narrow gate

The Peace Pulpit: As we try to reflect on these two different images — what Jesus says and what Isaiah says — clearly it's easier to listen to Isaiah. God is going to bring everybody into the fullness of life in God's reign.


All that we need for a full human life

The Peace Pulpit: Avoid greed in all its forms. Do not pile up material possessions thinking that you can always guard against whatever might happen. Try to remember that everything we have is a gift.
