We have been sent into the world with a message—that all people can find forgiveness and healing at the cross, and that Jesus offers each one of us a different way to live. This is a revolutionary message that transforms all dimensions of human endeavor—the arts, the sciences, business, politics, communities and families.

Yes, the Good Samaritan was doing something ordinary when he stopped to help a wounded traveler on his journey to Jericho. But he radically upset the social norms that said Samaritans don’t associate with Jews.
