Jesus is a Mirror

Many of my moments of clarity come from the wisdom of others.

I was having coffee with a dear friend the other day. Like other close friends of mine, when we talk, things get deep. In discussing Jesus, she said, "Jesus is a mirror." Jesus shows us who we are, and who we can be. Jesus unmasks us from our labels and shows us as our human true selves. Like Jesus, we are and can be healers. We too can sacrifice ourselves for the sake of our collective humanity. We too can challenge a fractured system with undomesticated and intentional love. Jesus challenged "correct" teaching and doctrine in favor of love. 

Jesus is a mirror, open and available to all.
