The Jesus Society
Leave everything behind, take nothing for the journey; risk, trust onto other people, respect them, find acceptance, seek out community, say yes to the kingdom--
Jesus, the Christ, says in his society, there is a new way to live.
You show wisdom, by trusting people;
you handle leadership, by serving;
you handle offenders, by forgiving;
you handle money, by sharing;
you handle enemies, by loving;
and you handle violence, by suffering;
In fact, you have a new attitude toward everything,
Because this is a Jesus society, and you repent,
not by feeling bad, but by thinking differently.
