being sent forth

Jesus said, "See, I am sending you out like lambs into the midst of wolves."  So often we in the church go out as wolves in the midst of lambs. 

I do not see the calling to go out as one to infuse a particular theological acceptance in others, as much as a calling to simply share how the love of Jesus has healed, forgiven and continues to transform our lives.  And is so doing, allowing God to touch as God pleases those with whom we live, even perhaps touching us again.
