Big and Small

We have it backwards.  Small things happen in Washington and Presidential Elections.

Big things happen every day in every store, school, church, and place of business.  Big things happen when people treat each other as Neighbor, you know, Jesus slapping the religious clown with the Samaritan Story Neighbor.

Neighbors cross the street unasked to help with the kids, paint, take people to the doctor, help a kid get tutored.  Big things happen when we treat others as they should have treated us.

Look across the street.  Do you see Washington?  Me neither.  I see my neighbor who is wondering what I am doing.  Who I am.  What I believe — as evidenced in my actions.

I see someone waiting for a surprise.
