DIVINE PERFECTION – HUMAN IMPERFECTION
The second of the four core values from the initiative WMTN that we will seek to embody:
“Humility: We will talk about our own side with the knowledge that our leaders are not perfect and that our current policy solutions are not complete answers to our nation’s complex problems.”
Here I am reminded of four of AA’s 12 steps: 4, 5, 6, 7.
I am not a perfect human being – neither is anyone else I know. As I practice these steps in my own life, I surrender my need to be in control of the Universe, much less any other merely human being. We follow Jesus’s suggestion: “Let he among you who is without sin, cast the first stone.”
Rev. Jean DeBarbieris
