Boundary setting vs. Center setting

I just read two interesting concepts about relationships: boundary setting and center setting.

1. Boundary setting: a homosapient sets its own boundaries on everything from race, politics, , fashion, sexiness to the trinity. Those who fit its boundary  are “in”, those do not then “out”. If the gap to the boundary is too big then just back off ignore, alienate, and excommunicate the outsider from the heart to the mind to the action.

This causes a lot of problems to the homosapient itself of course.

2. Center setting: another homosapient sets the center and the direction towards to center as how he sees people. Let say people are different on everything but they are moving towards some common ground, for example acting out of love to meet the needs of others, no matter how love is defined or on whose name.

Then boundaries do not matter anymore. The real question is where people are heading to?

Of course if the center is the person of Jesus then that solves all the problems.

Jesus and Others and You

Jesus and Others and You
Written by B. Metzger, 1951

Jesus and others and you
What a wonderful way to spell joy
Jesus and others and you
in the life of each girl and each boy
“J” is for Jesus for He has first place,
“O” is for others you meet face to face,
“Y” is for you, in whatever you do,
Put your self third and spell JOY.

Close Company

I visited the church and really enjoyed the message so I post them here.

from Woodcrest

Close Company

What was it like to live and walk alongside Jesus Christ, a man who was fully human yet fully God? How did Christ impact and change the lives of those closest to him? This summer we’re focusing on some of those people; men and women whose lives were marked by Christ is some profound way, and whose stories have been preserved for us in the pages of the Bible.
