Arthur would tell me if someone made fun of him he would not give back unkindness. Rather, he would go to the prayer garden at his church and listen to God comforting him. Something for all of us to ponder … to find a quiet space and dare to listen more and find solace, hope, and peace … and then share it.
(Arthur was a dear friend who lived courageously with schizophrenia … he truly became Jesus’ love here on earth. An example we can all follow. You can learn more about Arthur in my book, Arthur, Thank You for Being Jesus’ Love).
