Belonging to Become
We long for the beauty and goodness of deeply connected, creative relationships. However, the world in which we live bears the evidence of violence that emerges from our fear and our shame, expressing itself, ultimately, in some form of caste, a feature of what it has meant to be part of human civilization for virtually as long as we have been civilized. But there is hope to be found in our suffering, hope that emerges in the context of confessional communities that work to tell each person’s story more truly—and as such, so also the story of the community. In so doing, we each and we all, collectively, come to belong to our Lord, while we become more reflective of that same God whose image we bear.
