What makes you, You?
In that Marvel cinemas flipping title sequence scroll, what shows up?
In the temperance path of life, where do you live? Age Twenty? Thirty? Fifteen?
At the end of a bad day, what moments do you revisit?
From your first breath to now, you are where you need to be.
The question is, what to do with it?
Our stories are ours alone, ours to share with someone, our battles to fight.
Our suffering shapes our identity.
Our faith hangs on the hope of something more, the pull on our heart towards a compass direction rising out and above our trajectory, spreading to lives and people we have not known and may never meet.
Contemporary research believes Jesus to have been an architect, a stone mason and not a carpenter as originally conceived. This makes sense as he often spoke of building lives and laying foundations. The towers of our life can only be built on strong foundations, firm borders and set boundaries.
So, what makes you You?
Be something different.
In this time of division, be Unity. In this time of hate, be Love. In this time of poverty, be Generous. In this time of violence, be Peace. In this time of noise, be Silence.
Trends are made to be broken.
The status quot must end.
The future is being painted today by the brushstrokes of the fearless, of revolutionaries willing to answer the still, small voice that calls them in the dark hours.
The voice that calls to you.
Will you answer?
