Jesus could have said anything at the last supper. He could have told his friends to avenge his death. He could have raged about the unfairness of life. Instead he said, "Love one another."

The-One-Who-Enlarges takes on those who would make God small. The Creator-Who-Is-Still-Shaping-Me defies those who think in terms of caste or tribe.
Perhaps Jesus could love because Mary had loved him. She anointed his feet; he washed the disciples'. She poured out her love in a costly perfume. He did the same for the whole world.

You know grief and loss. You've been hurt a thousand times. As impossible as it might feel, trust that blessing is already embracing your anguish and that God will indeed turn the page.
We bear a lot of pain in the name of love. As Christians, we do that for one another, in order to remember that God is doing it for us.

When our plans and predictions go bust and our expectations aren't fulfilled, God is still God.
