Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures, and he said to them, ‘Thus it is written, that the Messiah* is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses* of these things.
--Luke 24: 45-48
THOUGHT: It seems most of what I am trying to communicate through this blog, and in my outlook on life, comes from a place of feeling that my mind has been opened. It has been opened to things that once were mysteries, or murky, or "irrelevant" stories. Doors in my brain that were locked, untouched, and untested. And now, the doors are opening. I am seeing Christ as one who has experienced the human condition, lived as one of us, and paid a heavy price for speaking truth to power... and in the end... still came out on top because he was resurrected from death into life. And, if I believe this is true, then nothing should be impossible, right?
