For your contemplation: “We must dare to live proleptically, that is, as if, God’s promised future is already. The manner in which we conduct our living should be but a foretaste of God’s time. This means that we must live as if every single human being, regardless of their language, their color, their country of origin, their income, their education, deserves food, clothing, shelter, care, because they do. We are to live as if the bigotry, fear, stereotypes, and hateful ‘isms’ that separate us one from another are no more. We are to live as if compassion not condemnation, justice not judgment, and righteousness not self-righteousness are the watchwords of our humanity. We are to live as if the peace of God that is justice has come to earth. Even if these ways of acting are not the ways of our world, we must be daring enough to make them the way of our living,” – Kelly Brown Douglas.
