You might notice that the haiku is a link. My friend Charity Sanstrom delivered a rather straight forward, and honest sermon on the teachings of Jesus. Many of us miss what Jesus says, because we are so busy trying to convince ourselves that he could not have meant that. These words are hard, they challenge us to be better — and at the same time remind us that we are not better than those we despise…. in fact, it is likely that we are not so good as they.
