Bec Ray is training to be a sassy Anglican priest in Perth, Western Australia. She’s worked in parish churches and as a chaplain in women’s prisons (she likes a captive audience for her preaching). Bec is a liberal Anglo-Catholic which means she likes to affirm everyone except those she disagrees with. She likes the bells and smells of high liturgy and the prayers are written down in a book by someone much holier than she.
Matthew 5: 38-42 “Here’s another old saying that deserves a second look: ‘Eye for eye, tooth for tooth.’ Is that going to get us anywhere? Here’s what I propose: ‘Don’t hit back at all.’ If someone strikes you, stand there and take it. If someone drags you into court and sues for the shirt off your back, giftwrap your best coat and make a present of it. And if someone takes unfair advantage of you, use the occasion to practice the servant life. No more tit-for-tat stuff. Live generously.
