God runs toward us!

"The Prodigal Son"

There's a marquee outside a church on my way to my office that says the following this week:

Live simply
Love deeply
Serve one another
Pursue God
I really like the first three bits of advice. I have to disagree with the injuction to "pursue God", however. God doesn't need pursuing. Rather, God pursues us. Remember the "The Hound of Heaven"?

  1. I agree Sr. Ellie. It seems we so often forget that it was God who pursued Moses, Noah, David, and Mary and changed the world though them.
