Enjoy this Trojan today Classic from David E. Nelson, first published July 2014.

I have appreciated the music of Kris Kristofferson for most of my adult life, and I especially like the lyrics, “Ain’t it just like a human? Here comes that rainbow again.” It suggests, for me, a new way to look at our humanness. For too many, being human is an excuse for making a mistake or doing something wrong. When someone fails I have heard the words, “After all I am only human.” That attitude implies being human is somehow a mistake or something to recover from. ]
Being fully human is a rare and wonderful gift we have been given.
