      No Walls    - April 20, 2009

      At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to
      bottom.  Matthew 27:51

      Each year, at holidays, seems like the same thing comes up time and
      again with one of our relatives.  

      No matter how hard I try, sharing, honest intimacy, and vulnerability
      seem impossible.

      This past holiday season it dawned on me that if my life were a circle,
      this person would be a dot on it.  

      Perhaps there would be a thick concrete wall between me and the dot, but
      she was just one person.  

      All the rest of the people in my life would be represented by the
      infinite number of dots that make up  

      the entire remaining circumference of the circle. And there would be no
      walls between me and all of  

      those dots.

      This was a very cool revelation. So, there’s a wall at one tiny
      intersection.  Deal with it, “take the best and leave the rest“.

      I was thinking about this and found myself humming, “and the walls came
      tumbling down.”  An old  

      gospel song about when the walls came down at Jericho.

      I thought about the great city of Berlin, Germany.  Berlin had a wall
      dividing the east and west sectors  

      of the city after the war.  Not too many years ago that wall was torn
      down. Now the city is a thriving  

      place again, enjoying its unification.

      When Christ was crucified, He died as a ransom for our lives; He was the
      living sacrifice. As He atoned  

      for our sin(s), the wall came down between us and God.

      No walls!  Thank you, Lord.
