Encounters with myself … others … Life !
I came across this statement recently in a post by Adrianplass that has me wondering :
“The world is filled with desperate people. They need Christ, not Christianity.”
Some soul searching going on here. Am sure I have been one of those who has contributed to separate Christ from Christianity !!
Thank God for the reminder which I hope will stick with me. And thank God for people like Pope Francis who helps us to refocus/re-align with the merciful Christ.
The world needs Jesus, not systems. A real person among real people doing real things. Informal, sometimes bewildering, often captivating and exciting, not very religious, frequently alienating.
