Ponderings from the Parish Associate - May 2024

Many years ago Burger King promoted their burgers by saying, “you can have it your way.” This was to distinguish them from the competition that did not provide for you to alter the standard condiments that were always on their burgers.

Today, especially since the pandemic, more and more individuals have taken Burger King’s phrase to the extreme in many aspects of their life. As we live in communities that have numerous perspectives about religion, politics and daily life, promoting this slogan as a mantra is not only impossible but counter productive to coexistence. As followers of the Christ, we understand in His ministry he often championed those that society forgot and ignored. Regardless of the issues we face, as a community of faith, may we be mindful of others even when they seek to have it their way!
