Goodness Rises

"Amazing grace how sweet the sound..."

Shock and sadness this past month in the wake of the Charleston shootings.  Yet forgiveness also rose up.   I was deeply moved by President Obama's eulogy, including these words chosen from writer Marilynne Robinson "The reservoir of goodness beyond and of another kind that we are able to do for each other in the ordinary cause of things."

Isn't that what life is like?  Our hearts break from pain. Our hearts appreciate joy.  If we remain open with the tenderness, all this can be the food for being fully human.  Not always easy, though.
