beautiful and revealing parable...

Thank you for this. Most revealing are the bitter comments it provoked, tasting of the story's tragic antagonist himself. One would hope that a church based on love would not be divided by such political vitriol.

Dictator

Dictator for life? We have separation of powers in three branches. If we can survive Obama and his destructive pen Trump will be no problem

Shame On You

Proliferation of this type of negativity that it is in this article, whether true or not, is exactly what will keep us divided as a nation, Methodists and Christians. Try looking for the positive. Work to support our new president. Pray for him. After the last eight (8) failed and divisive years, we need a positive start and outlook going forward.

The Good Samaritan

One could also parody the Clinton voter, but I'm not sure that would be helpful. "I do not know how we are going to heal as a nation from this election" assumes everything was o.k. before the election. It really was not. The establishment had appointed judges that redefined marriage in pagan terms, for example. When a nation goes against God's Plan of Created Order, serious problems result. As far as the sky falling, many Christians felt that way after the last two Presidents were elected. Many expected them to act like adults and cope on their own, without blowing bubbles (Yale University's response, I believe). It is no different this time, only the players have changed places.

Vincent van Gogh used amazing colors, in spite of the child-like features he frequently used. At one time he wanted to become a Methodist minister. Having sold his clothes to feed the poor, he could not understand why he needed to be fully dressed. His brother pretended to sell his paintings, sending him the proceeds to provide for Vincent. He really stuck the paintings in the attic having used his own money. You know, Theo was a real Good Samaritan!
