Jesus brings his Sermon on the Mount to a close (Matt 7:13-29) with four metaphors about choices: between two paths, between two trees, between two destinations, and between two methods of buildings.  All four ask the same question: what will we do with Jesus' teachings?  Our actions matter.  We see the impact of "walking the path" through the examples of Menno Simons, Dorothy Day, Tabitha of Joppa, and the victims of the recent murders at the Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC.

It's a catchy phrase: "Judge not, lest ye be judged" ~ Jesus (Matt 7:1).  It's sometimes used to "win" arguments, to shrug off calls for accountability, to disengage from difficult conversations, and to point the finger at those who do make judgments.  Is that what Jesus had in mind?  More than simply lowering our pointed fingers, Jesus is calling us to a radically different way of engaging those around us.

Read "Judge Not" from Joe Heikman

Philippians 4:4-8 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Charlie is a fictional fixture in downtown Saskatoon, busking his way through an average day on the street.  Where might Charlie encounter God along the way?
