How do we self-define and how do we self-limit by pigeon-holing ourselves.
I have had a number of conversations in the past week where, within the conversation, someone has self-defined and self-limited by one singular way of describing themselves. The categories chosen were around age, illness, orientation, wealth, work status and relationships
Yet one particular person with a life changing illness refused to be pigeon-holed by their condition. In fact they have a certain holiness because their life is filled with a Christ-like drive to live life in all its fullness and experience.
If we limit Jesus by defining him don’t do the same to yourself.
Don’t pigeon-hole yourself

Getting ready to resource Lent has got me thinking. There is nothing like precising five books, five films and the lyrics to numerous piece of music to drag you off into many areas of thought.
Jonathan Livingstone Seagull by Richard Bach, for example, is a book from my own formation and is akin to this week’s blog because of its focus on self awareness and the subsequent heightening our understanding.
Jesus said that he came to give life in all its fullness.

In the car with an eminent Muslim gentleman we talked of open faith that accepts and allows others to grow.
Jesus concept of ‘life in all its fullness’ is alive and well when we are ready to be open.
An Easter imperative?
