He will stand as reminder to me of why I do what I do.
He died on a street I use to travel regularly to go to church.
St Louis Park, Minnesota is the stomping grounds of my step-mother’s youth.
I lived there several years myself, learning lessons I did not know that I needed.
And had I understood the outcome from this worldly perspective, I would never have wanted.
“I can’t breathe.” He said this in the present of “possibly” three, (allowing for photo shopping lies) officers that were upon him.
Three, and one had his knee on his throat.
There are so many in the world without the ability to speak so I will do what I can to use my voice to share what I understand about Jesus, about the Holy Spirit, and about the only defense we have against the atrocities of forthright hatred in this world; the Atonement.
A few years ago I heard another voice. “Feed me”, I heard it where I worked for three weeks before the elderly gentleman succumbed.
He would say “Feed me” with such despair, even in between bites of food. I heard reports of his declaration going on throughout the night.
He and I had found a cord of friendship, before his mind wondered out of my reach, and his words did not go unnoticed.
I left that job determined to write about what I knew, what I understood about the life that we believe we are “forced” to live.
I wrote and I traveled to share my message.
But I still had things to learn, unequivocally.
It has not been easy, but I do believe that I have come to understand what is at risk and what needs to be done.
Let me rephrase that. I know that I need to use whatever skills and resources I have, to serve Jesus and his Plan that is already in place and just waiting to be implemented.
Whether people are ready, or willing, to hear it is another story, but that is not my concern.
My concern is to do my part.
Christ is the Way, We are the Christ that provides the Way by accepting the Atonement, even as Jesus has done.
And he does still run the show, just like he always has, but he needs us to accept our place in that. This means we need to accept the Atonement now.
Only then, will the power of God be let lose on the earth, through us, the power of Christ, His Son, innocent and blessed by His Father.
You know, I do not have to belong to an organization to have a relationship with God. Neither do you. He is the Creator, not the Dictator.
