At the heart of the Christian tradition is the mystery of love, rooted in an ancient community who radicalized love of neighbor with the words:  “No one has seen God, if we love one another God lives in us.”  (1 John 4:12)  The Gospel accounts illuminate this love of God, neighbor, self and even enemy in the Christoform pattern of Jesus.  But how hard is it to love in today’s world, weighted as it is by racism, disparity and interfaith injustice?  Following the extraordinary choices of ordinary women, we’ll see the possibilities for the ancient wisdom of Christian tradition to transform even our 21st century world when Christians find the courage to love.
