Brothers and Sisters

Tonight I am to give a fireside chat about being brothers and sisters in the family of God. I know that you call me "Father," and for you I am father. But with you I am brother. (Not an original idea -- it comes from St. Augustine.) I am certainly here for you, and thus I accept the responsibility of father. But I am also with you and so I accompany you as brother. And you accompany me.
