Wherever Jesus went, he left behind him towns, households and individuals who glimpsed a new vision of the kingdom, and for whom life would never be the same again. He did this by inviting women to be disciples, and teachers, and heralds of the kingdom. He did this by naming Samaritans as neighbours. He did this by calling you his friend. May all of our lives be so turned upside down that we have the courage to be disciples and heralds in his name.
-Br. James Koester, SSJE
