We as a nation need to be reeducated about the necessary and sufficient conditions for making human beings human. We need to be reeducated not as parents–but as workers, neighbors, and friends; and as members of the organizations, committees, boards–and, especially, the informal networks that control our social institutions and thereby determine the conditions of life for our families and their children.
In a library, you can find small miracles and truth, and you might find something that will make you laugh so hard that you will get shushed, in the friendliest way. I have found sanctuary in libraries my whole life, and there is sanctuary there now, from the war, from the storms of our families and our own minds. Libraries are like mountains or meadows or creeks: sacred space. So this afternoon, I’ll walk to the library.
I don’t know that I would have the courage to come over to a new country where the religion is different, the language is different, where I don’t have any money. The thought of starting over like that in the way that many refugee families have to start all over again – that’s an incredible thing to think about. One of the things I tell about Refugee is that unless you’re Native American or a descendant of slaves, your family immigrated to this country – whether they came over on the Mayflower or whether they came over on a raft last year.
On this Thanksgiving, as we spend time with our family and friends, let’s all reflect on what we’re thankful for in our own lives. And let’s remember those who cannot be with their loved ones because they’re serving overseas. But let’s also do our part to help those who have no place to go for a meal. I encourage all Americans to do what they can to help those in need-because the best way to show our gratitude for what we have is by doing our part for those who have less.
I believe that family is closer to God’s heart than anything else, the support system he has given us to build us up in faith, and to support us when we falter. If we want our family lives to conform to God’s will, Jesus must be our priority, our focal point, in our home as well as in our ministries.That doesn’t mean that it’s always easy to live together: home can be the hardest place to live a Christian life. That’s were people see us when we’re tired and our defences are down.
I’ve met people I wished I hadn’t met. But Al Pacino was not one of them. For a guy who’s old enough to be my father I feel like we’re kindred spirits. We have a lot in common. Our families and our history with our families is very similar. Our relationships with our families is very similar. We had a lot more in common than I thought.
We aren’t in high school. We aren’t really in our families and we aren’t in our houses. Those are the places we grew up and the times we spent together, but they aren’t us. If think they are, then we’re lost, because times end and places are lost. We aren’t any place or any time . . . We are everywhere.
We live in a society of social networks, with Twitter pages and Facebook, and that’s fine, but we have contact with our work associates, our family, our friends, and it seems like half the time we are more preoccupied with our phone and other things going on instead of the actual relationships that we have right in front of us. Hopefully, people can learn from this and try to actually help if someone is battling something deeper on the inside than what they are revealing on a day-to-day basis.
