Who is Jesus to you?

 One of my favorite bible verses of late is Matthew 16:15. Jesus asks His disciples, "What about you? Who do you say that I am?"

Raised a Roman Catholic and now interreligious, I sometimes identify with the Unitarian Universalists who covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person, and justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. Wouldn't it be a better world if everyone covenanted together to affirm and promote these principles?

If so prejudice and discrimination would go bye bye as would systemic racism.

Maybe it all comes down, in the last analysis, to our values. What matters to us? I mean really, not lip service.

Jesus is my guru, my teacher, that's who He is to me.
