This inspiring presentation suggests that the Beatitudes are not a list of commands but rather blessings, given to us by Christ. Suppose Jesus meant exactly what he said, that each of us is a blessing, called to live out our own particular gift in a way that enables us to be a blessing to the rest of the community. Kathleen Chesto invites us to look at the beatitudes in just this way, and helps us fashion a way of life that wraps us ever more closely in the arms of God. In describing the beatitudes as gifts, not challenges, Kathy Chesto shows us how to discover those gifts from people in the scripture, people in the news, people in our ministries, and in ourselves.
