I usually think of the positive side of ripples – the way our actions and words impact folks far and wide. Today was a reminder that sometimes our actions impact someone in a negative way. I am sad that the actions of a few have impacted the life of someone I love dearly. So I pray that I will remember that when I make decisions. I hold onto the hope that is ours. The hope that cannot be destroyed by the institutional church. I hold onto hope for K. that isn’t able to hold onto that hope for herself right now.
There may be more to this later… we’ll see.
