|The 'Pixie' Kindergarten|
In December I tried a perm again, for the first time in over 20 years - and I love it! I have also grown my hair out and I wear it up in a french twist several days a week. For the first time I am enjoying styling my hair. I must be a slow learner.
Today this headline made me wonder what is going on in the world?!!???
When we get right down to it what is required of us? Of a people who live together a in society so that it can function well?
As Christians we are called to follow the words of Jesus: 'Love God, Love one Another.' Another guiding passage for Judeo-Christians is Micah 6:8: 'He has told you, human one, what is good and what the Lord requires from you: to do justice, embrace faithful love, and walk humbly with your God.'
As Americans, I wonder could such a thing happen to us? I like to think not, we have this whole independent streak in us...but somewhere in between are folks trying to figure out a balance between conformity and individuality and that includes how we present ourselves to others.
I guess the best we can hope for is acceptance of who we are, as beloved children of God, and acceptance of others who are likewise created in God's image. Even Kim Jong-un. I just wonder what's going to happen when he changes his mind and decides to go for a new look?
