Bad guys

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.


I read headlines about cruelty, about mean-spirited people          … and I want to be mean to them...                   and I know I've lost.

          I hear about bigots who want to spread fear          … and fear rises in me...                   and I plead for mercy.


The world is full of bad guys and I am one of them.          What matters is                   the direction my heart is facing.


We will not be saved by extraordinary people          but by regular bad guys                   receiving and giving mercy.


Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
