Tonight we say farewell to Jodie Whittaker who played the 13th Doctor in the iconic British sci-fi show “Doctor Who”. She was also the first woman to play the role. I loved her performances and I wish she could stick around another season or two. But this show is built on change and the next Doctor will be Ncuti Gatwa who will be the first person of colour to play the role.
Working for justice is an important act of love and peace. It requires a lot of us. Caring for the least fortunate is humanity in practice. There are some who are by society’s standards aren’t desirable but they need grace the most. Everyone makes mistakes and everyone is worthy of forgiveness.
I think compassion is in short supply and we need to generate more of it. My friends may we all be humble and extend arms that embrace those who struggle in life. May the creator be with us all as we live imperfect lives.
People are worthy of grace in abundance no matter who they are. Let’s hope we all learn from our mistakes and seek to be better and do better.
(I believe in what I just said in this post. However, there are some who need to be held accountable for their actions that have done great harm to others. They are worthy of forgiveness too but they also must ask for forgiveness for what they have done.)
I donated blood today at Church which brings together a couple of worlds of mine. Twice a year we do a blood drive which I organize because it helps those in need. In full disclosure, I work at Blood Assurance which is our regional blood bank that brings a mobile donation unit to the church. We do this as an outreach to our community to provide life-saving blood to patients in the hospitals we serve.
