When is a quart not a quart and a pound not a pound? If you check your local grocery store, you’ll find plenty of examples. What I’m relaying is a recent conversation noting that the sizes of many of the things we’re accustomed to buying are smaller than they used to be. What used to be a quart of ice cream is no longer a full quart, etcetera.
In these days of uncertainty about size, we at The Palms are not shortening the Ten Commandments to eight. We are not limiting or shrinking God’s love, either.
Our job in the church is to expand the love, the justice, the welcome. In a day when companies are cutting corners on their products, we are offering Love that is unconditional, working for a just world for all, and providing radical hospitality.
