BEING A HERO I
‘ve grown up in a world of superheroes — Wonder Woman, Superman, Captain Marvel, the Fantastic Four. Ordinary people like me, without super powers or limbs that stretch for miles or the ability to change form — well, they can’t be heroes. Or can they? That long list in Hebrews [chapter 11, TEV] contains a telling phrase: “They were weak, but became strong.” It seems that strength and super powers are not prerequisites to hero-ness. God’s heroes are weak people who have simply made themselves available. Being a hero is not ducking into a phone booth and putting on tights and a flashy costume. It is knowing ourselves. It is acknowledging our weakness and limitations, and making all that we have available to God. Mary Lou Redding, Alive Now, May/Jun 1987.
