From The Pastor

Dear Friends:

The expression “Imitation is the highest form of flattery” could be one way to think about today’s Gospel command of Jesus: “Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.” That’s a tall order. We know that all human beings are less than perfect. And reaching perfection may be beyond our reach, and Jesus certainly knew that.

He lived in a human community and witnessed that first hand and yet he gave that instruction. Well, if perfection is not completely attainable, perhaps trying as best we can to imitate Jesus is not a form of flattery, but rather a good try at being better than we are now.

Imitating Jesus is not simply flattery, it’s using him as a model for our own lives to improve them and to improve our relationships with others. It takes being open to God’s grace to rise above the way we have gotten used to living to find a new way to live: imitating Jesus as we move toward being “perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

Peace, Father Marty
