susan, i see what you mean. i have been paricipating in compassionate listening workshops during this time. one concern has been about white privelige, how we can grow in our thinking and attitudes. in the end we want to make our culture more loving . i find myself called to those who are set in their ways against the “other”. they are all around me. they are spiritually poor. they are afraid and that manifests itself in anger. in greivance. they are unable to be open because they are so afraid. they cant articulate their feelings so they post things on the internet that seem extreme (to me), out of character for the people who i know seek to be good , to be kind.
so i sympathize with the virgins who were so preoccupied with their own concerns that they “forgot” to get more oil.
