Jesus Told Me

Driving back from the dentist, I thought about what Harvey Cox said, that he had conversations with Jesus.  So I asked, and immediately Jesus was in the passenger seat.  I asked what I should do about the situation with my A-V presentation and someone canceling it.  He said forgiveness and compassion were the most important thing, that doing the show was nowhere near as important.  I said “But what about my vocation?”  He said “You’re already doing all you need to do to fulfill your vocation.”  What a relief, what a comfort.

Harvey Cox wrote a book called When Jesus Came to Harvard.  The book was based on a class he taught called “Jesus and the Moral Life.”  The picture of Jesus that emerges is one that I like very much and am pretty sure is how the man himself must have been.
