Countering serious adults who strive for certainty, Jesus invites a childlike playfulness, a way of becoming. Grownups get trapped in reasoning, in quests for certainty, right and wrong, and social acceptance. A childlike perspective is playful. Open to questions. Exploring possibilities widely. To play is to gaze in wonder. To do something simply because it delights. To act with freedom, unconcerned about what others may think. Try it out. Take risks. Be vulnerable.
-Br. Luke Ditewig, SSJE
