Blogger Natalie Trust tweeted Tuesday morning:
Someone responded with this blog post, “Your Kindness Is Good for You,” written by former hospital chaplain Casey N. Cep. Cep writes about how performing acts of kindness can positively impact a person’s life, but that it can be difficult to practice consistently.
As the debates rage on about Christianity and homosexuality, Cep’s post offers a gentle reminder that kindness can be a soothing balm.
“KINDNESS IS LIKE HOLDING an ice cube in your hands. It stings, but then the cold dissolves; what at first you could barely hold becomes something you cannot let go…But how do we cultivate such kindness, learning to hold the ice in our hands?”
