A Heart-sized Challenge

“The supreme religious challenge is to see God’s image in one who is not in our image.”                                                                             By Jonathan Sacks in The Dignity of Difference

This powerful and convicting quote needs no comment from me.  I only ask a few questions.  How much of the chaos in our world is caused by the failure to “see God’s image in one who is not in our image?” (Think Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya, Israel, Russia, Syria, Egypt . . . and America.)  How is the Church doing with this challenge?  Who am I judging because I am consciously or subconsciously looking for me instead of Christ in “the other.”
