A Letter From Christ

One pastor spoke about the Human Library Project, a human book site where you get people on loan. The person making the appointment sits down for 30-minutes and visits with people of different faiths, singles, the unemployed, the homeless, the blind, etc. The gist of his message, “What if people checked us out? What if people borrowed us for 30-minutes? Would we be hard to read, or would we be an open book? What would they learn?” The sermon was thought provoking; however, I suspect some folks might think it easier and less messy to participate in the Human Library Project than to participate in the Good Samaritan Project. Paul said, “You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts” (2 Cor 3:2-3 NIV).

-----I wonder if there’s one of those letters in the Human Library Project. Probably not. At least they see the importance of talking ideas with one another, a commodity seeming to be in short supply around the churches. There’s plenty of conversation at church. But it is sometimes hard to scare up a good conversation about the Lord, His Word, history, and the likes. “Then those who feared the LORD spoke with one another; the LORD heeded and heard them, and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the LORD and thought on his name.” (Malachi 3:16)

Love you all,
