"I Thirst"
 
Jesus said, "I thirst." I wonder what he thirsts for today…

Does Jesus thirst for the day when he no longer hears women express feelings of powerlessness in their faith communities, not because they have been silenced, but because their gifts aren't being fully utilized?

Does Jesus thirst for the day when there is be absolutely no reason for a gay man to ask, "Why do people who call themselves Christians show so much hatred towards homosexuals and others who are different?"

Does Jesus thirst for the day when there isn't a single child who is being sexually abused, when there isn't a single teenager who is being beaten, and when there isn't a single woman or man who is being physically abused?

Does Jesus thirst for the day when the radically inclusive, just, and safe world for everybody that he worked so hard to create becomes a reality?
