Love your neighbour as yourself. As I write these words, I have share my weekly blog http://thecommunity.anglican.ca/eastern/10868/a-song-of-peace/ and I am getting some emails back about the various topics I have discussed concerning women’s shelters, the rights of women, and the horrible deaths of Armed Forces Personnel in Quebec and Ottawa through acts of terror. As I write these words, I have received a text from my niece and goddaughter in Halifax, who is under lockdown at her high school because of a suspected gunman in the area.
It seems as if this world is upside down, and this country is in peril, perhaps even off the rails. In all of this, Jesus in the Scriptures is asking us to employ love of self and neighbour as a setting for life and ministry.
