122. I think you'd like her entire family...

Dedicated to self-edification, they shine the harsh white light of truth on Christians, Jews, and everyone else. They live a Christian life in keeping with the ancient teachings of Christ... they are Good Samaritans... they are big on feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, loving all people even if some perceive those people as sinners. It's a beautiful thing, imho. They no longer pray in public restaurants, they celebrate most of the Jewish holidays, they don't judge people, they don't condescend, they give of themselves as much as they think is needed even when it appears they may suffer personally and take the leap of faith that they will be provided for... and they have been. They are part of a Kibbutz... they understand it's communism, and they embrace the socialism that Jesus taught. They are Christian missionaries... and they feel they've taught as much as has been taught to them. It's really quite lovely... we were raised in the same church as kids... I'm now Agnostic, and she's fully Christian in all the best that the word means.

I'm fairly blown away how it's all turned out... my aunt, her uber Fundy mother, is freaking out, man :) But I couldn't be happier about the whole thing.
