“Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” Looking around at those seated around him in a circle, he said, “Look, here are my mother and my brothers. Whoever does God’ s will is my brother, sister, and mother.” – Mark 3:20-35 CEB
Tending a new creation may involve the creation or expansion of our concepts of “family.” In the scripture, Jesus confirms that kinship in God’s Realm can go beyond bloodlines. We can re-create family in so many ways, whether we grew up with a family of origin that offered us support or did not. Who is our kin? All those who seek to live together in love!
