Love and Risk

We are instructed to be radical by the General Assembly (July 2018).

John Milne lucidly addressed this issue in his July letter begging us to “carry forward the message of Jesus”.

We need to change our ways of meeting and interacting with people. The message of Jesus from His life and death is to approach each person we meet with unconditional love. This is where the risk is first encountered. In the appalling and shameful migrant and refugee crisis in so many countries, it is the human being that needs to be met and loved, just as Jesus did to anyone in need. What stops us doing this? It is not a lack of faith in God but an inability to see God in each encounter. This has been shown time and time again by our Lord himself and written about by Martin Buber (“I and Thou”), and demonstrated with sacriice by Etty Hillersum and Frans van der Lugt.
