February 2 is Candlemas in the old Christian calendar, as well as Groundhog Day and Imbolg in Celtic spirituality. I haven't blogged for a while, but I've been thinking about the spectrum that has charity on one end and justice on the other, and how to invite people to move along the spectrum. It's like the story about a town on a river, and suddenly babies begin washing up on the banks of the river. The townspeople begin saving the babies. More babies wash up, and eventually institutions grow up, dedicated to saving, sheltering and raising the babies. But no one in the town ever asks where the babies are coming from.
