This past Sunday many of our faith community gathered at Carriage Hill Nursing home to spend some time with the residents. Our time was spent playing bingo, having personal conversations, handing out some treats and giving away some crafts our kids had made the previous week. Most importantly it was a time of getting to know some new people in our community that in many ways have been pushed off into the margins.
Perhaps we need to spend some time contemplating some of the following questions:
* how can our eyes be more focused on those who get left out? * who are the others in our community that get pushed to the margins? * how can we live more in the margins? * are we willing to live there?
What other questions come to your mind (leave a comment)?
