Lunch with Jesus, by Thomas (Tim) Mitchinson

In this article, Thomas (Tim) Mitchinson, a colleague and a writer, who writes about the relationship between thought, spirituality and health, and trends in that field, offers much for us to consider.  He shares his spiritual perspective and the account of the ministry of Jesus in the Bible, as a guide to overcome animosity and hatred directed at ourselves and others. Tim acknowledges how the Sermon on the Mount (given to us by Jesus) is the saving grace that can and does bring healing to every challenge we may face.  Enjoy this eye opening article and prepare to be inspired by Love!

Every year I read The Traveler’s Gift by Andy Andrews.  It is a novel about a young man facing huge crises in his life, and after a car accident he finds himself traveling through time.  He is met by various historical figures, each one giving him a piece of valued advice.

He meets Presidents Truman and Lincoln, Christopher Columbus and Anne Frank among others.  That book is a quick read, and one of my favorites, but it always leaves me thinking, “With whom would I like to meet and share a few moments of discussion?”

Like the character in the book, I would love to meet Truman and Lincoln, and probably John Adams, Peter Ilych Tchaikovsky and maybe even comic Phyllis Diller, whose movies made me laugh as a kid.

But there is no one I would rather sit down and speak with than Jesus.  With all the division, controversy, and threats of violence this world faces, I would love to have “lunch with Jesus” so to speak – to hear what he would say, and also ask his advice on how I could help heal these divisions by living a better life.  But actually, I know his words to me would not deviate from what has already been recorded in the Bible.
