You Shall Love Your Neighbor As Yourself
This Sunday's Gospel reading from Mark is familiar - very familiar. Despite that, I read it again and again this week, the week after Sandy - the hurricane that lived up to all the hype.
Loving my neighbor - caring and aiding and supporting and praying - as myself is a commandment, not an option. The commandment holds whether I am in good times or bad.
The wake left by Sandy demands that we respond in the many ways we are able - not because we want to, but because we must.
Volunteer, contribute, offer your time or your talent. Love your neighbor as yourself.
