Wow. I loved this article for pointing out that as I am related to Christ in flesh, I am also related, though my very body to my fellow human beings and to the earth. Stardust indeed, from which I came and to which my body will return. I am drinking coffee. Perhaps one of its water molecules was once the tear of a starving baby, or its mother. As I sip, I have compassion. I struggle with how I respond to such hunger. I eat the body of Christ and drink the blood of the new covenant and feel it enter me and am reminded that it is in my body that Christ enters the earth: through my eyes and my hands which are physical things that convey love and compassion. Thank you for this article.
