Kindling Neighborly Connections between People and Nature.

Open hearts, Open minds...

A paraphrase of scripture and some words I felt being spoken to my spirit as I opened my mind and heart in conversation with Jesus today...

“The grace, love, and welcome into my peaceful Kingdom that I extend to you is also extended to the person, people group, ethnicity, culture and nation whom you hate, despise, and consider an enemy. If you will not welcome the gifts of my love for your neighbor and even your enemy, welcome every opportunity to grow in love and understanding of those who are “other” for you, open your heart to forgiveness and reconciliation...if your heart is too hard to accept these gifts then my heaven will be a hell for you and the Kingdom of God will be out of reach. Consider your enemies; and consider God’s grace; seek not to be like them or for them to be like you but for each of you to be like me in your love for one another. Then heaven and the Kingdom of God will not be a far off longing but will become a very present reality.” -Jesus
