You can’t change what you don’t love

From Jim Somerville's blog, an interesting reflection on change, and love...what do you love?  Do you love what you are trying to change? Lots of food for thought here!

My brother Gray once said, “You can’t change what you don’t love.” I’m not sure where he got it. Maybe he made it up. But it struck me as unusually wise and I’ve remembered it ever since. Maybe that’s why, when I go for my morning run, I always yell out “I LOVE THIS TOWN!” as I run across the bridge over I-195.
Linda Moore loves this town, too.
Linda is a graduate of the Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond who worked at a church in Massachusetts for a few years before coming back for some additional training and a residency as a pediatric chaplain at VCU Medical Center. In the process she claims to have “fallen in love with Richmond all over again.”
Linda is a member of First Baptist, and in her pictures you can see that she has fallen in love with the church all over again, too, but it’s not only that. She loves the James River, Shockoe Bottom, Byrd Park, Maymont, Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, the Farmer’s Market, Downtown, Richmond Hill, nature, and maybe Krispy Kreme doughnuts (smile). If you click on the link below you can see a slideshow of Linda’s Richmond pictures. Don’t feel like you have to look at all 119 pictures; just look at enough of them to make you fall in love with Richmond—for the first time or all over again.
You can’t change what you don’t love.
