At one time or another, we’ve all asked a friend or family member for advice. We may have been expecting help in resolving a problem or making a difficult choice. If the conversation was a good one, we walked away feeling confident that the advice was sound and we would be doing the right thing. But what if the advice was completely out of left field – the opposite of anything we would have expected to hear? When Jesus spoke, you almost had to expect the unexpected. “Blessed are the meek.” “Blessed are they who hunger.” Without hearing him out, his declarations just did not make sense. Join us as we look deeper into The Beatitudes – declarations by Jesus that seem so counter-intuitive, yet they describe the world as we long it to be.
