Every Creature, in the Image of God

I don’t normally post on Saturday’s, but Richard Rohr’s meditation from Friday, June 9, 2017, is too good to pass up.  

Click here for is his daily meditation, in full, with my favorite quotes from the meditation below:

In his original Rule, Francis instructed friars who traveled to Muslim lands not to engage in argument or disputes, and to accept local authority, even if it meant making themselves vulnerable. [2] He wanted them to carry the Gospel, not take up crusaders’ weapons. We need such a message today.

Imagine what the world would be like if we treated others with inherent and equal dignity and respect, seeing the divine DNA in ourselves and everyone else too—regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender, nationality, appearance, or social class. Nothing less offers the world any lasting future.

Every creature carries the DNA, or Imago Dei, of the Creator, and it shall not be taken from them.
