Entering the Life of God

This Sunday’s gospel reading contains the story commonly known as “The Good Samaritan”. Perhaps it should be called “The God-like Samaritan”, which is equivalent to “the saintly heretic” or perhaps “the purehearted mongrel”. However we might frame the paradoxal element in this story, at the heart of it is the universal human longing for a closer connection with the life of God. To achieive this, Jesus tells us, we need to discover those who God wants us to care for, and in doing so experience the wildly extravagent comnpassion God has towards humanity and towards our world.
