At our last class, Miss Pamela gives us two homework assignments:
- Think of a person you strongly dislike. Write about living one day as that person; try to understand that person
- What did Jesus Christ mean when he said 'turn the other cheek?' What does it mean to me?
I got Homework #1 down and ready to go. It's Homework #2 that's giving me trouble. And I find that troubling and strange. The statement speaks for itself. But as I think about it, I can't help but wonder what Miss Pamela is getting at - or wants us to get at. First, I guess, I'll have to read the passage in which Jesus said it ~ read before and after.
Any and all input/thoughts/ideas/etc wanted and appreciated.
