Daniel 13; Ps 23: 1-6; John 8: 1-11


We can feel the shame of this woman. Sadly, we live in a society that favours shame and disgrace; not a place God can call home. Whatever Jesus was scribbling in the ground was blown away in the wind. What was not blown away and all these centuries later remains, is the non-condemnation of Jesus with this woman. Part of our journey is discovering ways to avoid reacting and develop the craft of responding. The way we are with one another matters greatly for the well-being of all. It is never the way of Jesus to react with shame and disgrace.
