compassion 6: of narrow ways and getting through

When the poet Wendell Berry asks, "Why must the way be narrow?" he gives voice to the question many people have when they consider Jesus' words about riches, camels, and the eye of a needle. Why narrowness in a faith so wide as to embrace us all with love? As Pr Engquist reflects on this week's story from Mark's gospel, she is helped by Berry's reflection on the idea of becoming unburdened, less as a way of being right or righteous and more in the way of being helped into another time and space, into the realm of God or what some call "eternal life." Have a listen and see if it helps broaden the narrow way. ;)
