From Candleford with Love...

From the ASBOJesus Blog, inspired by the very wonderful latest BBC series of Lark Rise to Candleford. Last night's edition was quite emotionally draining yet remaining uplifting. The demonstration of the folk from socially and economically upmarket Candleford showing compassion to their neighbours and family in the adjacent hamlet of Lark Rise is a challenging example of what the church should be doing for the relative poor. It means getting our hands dirty and moving outside our comfort zones... even outside our churches, perhaps?

I'm often dismayed at how persistently, whether i'm seeking to give love or receive it, my gut reaction of defensiveness kicks in... With the love and help of God, family and friends it does lessen, so thank you. Yes, let's seek to love like Jesus, it's powerful.
