Jesus bakes cookies: the peacemaking neighbour

“Ding dong!” Answering the door, I saw only a pile of garbage and the quickly retreating backs of several 10-year-old girls. Not content to let this behaviour occur in my neighbourhood, I marched after them. Giggles masked the girls’ nervousness as I confronted them. Giving them my name and address, I urged them to tell their parents about their misbehaviour – or else I would! But belligerence transformed into relief and surprise as I continued: “Next time you knock on my door, come inside for a visit instead, and we can bake cookies with my daughter.”
