Unfortunately, God does not work through magic fairies.  If this were the case, we would be absolved of moral responsibility.  Instead, God has called us into relationships of mutual cooperation and interdependence.   Reflecting on Jesus visit to his hometown and sending of the disciples in Mark 6, Pastor Rob reflects on the various interdependent relationships:  Us and God; Us and each other; Us and the stranger.

Pastor Rob closes with a reflection on how we might be blessed as a nation to consider July 4 Interdependence Day, not Independence Day.
