Isnt the fundamental problem at the root of all others we are facing in our world today how to make room for each and every person to be counted as an equal, to be validated for his or her own unique personhood, and to live with every other person in a harmony and unity in which each is respectful of self, others, and the environment in which she or he lives?
In Making Room, author Linda Rex invites us to experience a prayerful rediscovery of the roots of our humanity within the Trinity, the God in whose image we were created. Drawing upon the nature of God as Father, Son, and Holy Spiritand the incarnation of the Word of God in the person of Jesus ChristLinda points us back to the fundamentals of our humanity and to our need to live within the truth of who we are in Christ: the beloved children of God.
Something substantial can be missed when we do not look at Christ and our humanity in a way that takes into account the nature and being of the God who created humanity to bear his likeness. And while Christianity is often seen today as a cause of division and suffering rather than the source of healing and unity, perhaps instead of rejecting Christianity, what we need most is to reexamine who Jesus is and what it means to be a follower of Christ.
