3.30.14, Letter to the Pope, Rev. Kent Matthies

Pope Francis is the most exciting and hope inspiring new religious leader on the international stage in decades. Every person of faith and goodwill has an opportunity to cherish Pope Francis’ gift of hope and deep faith. I will preach my letter to the Pope thanking him for inviting all of us to a more complete church of the “bruised, hurting and dirty” and an abandonment of a church, which is “confined and clinging to it’s own security.”  How can we all find deeper compassion and actual transformation?
