There is no guilt here to condemn you.  Only love unbound.  We forget this simple tale of liars, cheats, and dreamers who never got it all right, but were still chosen by God to carry out God's mission. So don't accept the chains which would bind you to defeat. Accept the gift of love which calls to every imperfect being to love, teach, and be good news to God's world. Letting others catch a glimpse of love unbound.
