The Good Samaritan

The Sunday before last we had a very small group, and I presented the Good Samaritan material to a few children for the first time. The children were really engaged with the work and made some wonderful observations. I've been enjoying one reflection ever since.

We've talked a lot about the History of the Kingdom of God, and the children know about parousia - the time yet to be when Christ will come again and God will be all in all. I was thinking of this when I wondered with the children what it would be like if everyone was like the Good Samaritan. In a joyful voice, one child said, "it would be the Earth of God - all in all!"

I just love that!
