I beg to differ

Someone once said, A candle is a protest at midnight. It is a non-conformist. It says to the darkness, 'I beg to differ."

Micah Challenge
The Micah Challenge for this week
Two tragic, public deaths in Sydney produce a massive reaction of fear. We make knee-jerk assumptions about terrorism. We readily affix hostile labels to the perpetrator. We do not ask what trauma, loss and dislocation led him to this. We do not ask what our role may have been in it all. May the hope, peace, joy and love that we understand Christmas to be about shine a light into our darkness and point to a more just and merciful response.

Jesus said; Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
Matt 11: 28-30 The Message
