A model of love

How fortunate Doug Lehman is to have a mother who models the love of his heavenly parent (“Pink Menno Grandmother’s Activism Came Naturally”). How fortunate the LGBTQ community is to have a person like Ruth Lehman who courageously lives Micah 6:8: “Do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God.” How fortunate our larger faith community is to witness a person who follows the two commandments Jesus said are the most important ones and under which all other laws depend: “Love God . . . and your neighbor as yourself.” My heart sings when I see folks like Ruth Lehman living the meaning of these scriptures as the Spirit has revealed them to her rather than just reciting them and arguing about their meaning.
