Wrapping up a three-part sermon series on Healing the Divide: Reclaiming Hope, we have learned that as we see through the cross, we make decisions based on a different set of priorities. And when we reach across what divides us, we only have the right to give up our freedom, not someone else’s.
Living in Christian community, we must remember how we are all connected even as we differ. For example, calling forth people’s gifts allows them to offer God their time and talents, while giving up our own power and territory evens the workload. We work for unity not uniformity. It is only by living Christ’s love that we can realize the promise of unity amidst diversity. Let us plant the seeds of love today, and allow God to work the miracle that will heal the divide.
The song is “This is My Father’s World.” The sermon, service and this week’s tweets reference Karoline Lewis and Bayler.
