The Bunny in the Garden
Lay Leader: Emily Quarles-Mowrer
The other night, I had a dream that a neighbor was running into my garden, grabbing my basil and parsley and running away again. My dream self reacted by teaching my neighbor which plants already growing in her own garden were good to eat. She didn’t need my harvest, she had her own. I woke up in the morning and saw a bunny in my yard. My awake self was much less charitable toward the bunny.
Why is it that sometimes we are able to react with understanding, while other times we cannot find it within ourselves to forgive?
