What does it mean to go the second mile? Are we a community committed to going the second mile? Do we have systems to support people trying to go the second mile? How can we create a culture that fosters individuals who go the second mile? These are all questions that are important to the work we are called to do.
Thomas Orjala gave a great talk about this topic a few years back at a conference. I invite you to listen and contribute your ideas. We are always in need of challenging ourselves to look deeper into how we let the living truth shape our lives.
As the revelation so beautifully states: “In winning souls for the Master, it is not the first mile of compulsion, duty, or convention that will transform man and his world, but rater the second mile of free service and liberty-loving devotion that betokens the Jesusonian reaching forth to grasp his brother in love and sweep him on under spiritual guidance toward the higher and divine goal of mortal existence.” ~The Uranta Book (195:10.5)
