A Message on Love from an Unlikely Source

I enjoy listening to TED Talks when I'm driving down the road. I recently listened to Andrew Solomon talk about loving. For some of you, this will be a challenging talk to hear. Some of you will throw out the message because of the messenger. Some of you won't be able to get past the first two minutes.

But for those who are able to make it to the end of the 23-minute talk, I think you will be encouraged. I think you will hear the heart of Jesus for the "least" among us. I think you will think about love for those with special needs or distinct categories in an entirely different way. You might even come away with a greater desire to love and accept and a decreased compulsion to judge.

Whatever you think, please leave me your thoughts.
