"I urge you, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,...that you be united in the same mind and in the same purpose." 1 Corinthians 1:10
It seems that rivalries and choosing sides have been common disorders affecting the Christian community since its very beginning. My head and heart are weary of all the violence, racial tension and divisiveness that seem to be sweeping our country. Yet even when I sit in darkness and when it appears that our land is overshadowed by death I do not feel despair. Light has arisen. Many people are responding to a wakeup call and are coming together and standing united.
Let us pray deeply and repent. Jesus died that we might all be united in the kingdom of heaven. And what is the purpose that we all share? The answer, of course, is Love. In the gospel for Jan. 29th we will hear in the Beatitudes how we can live that love well.
