I have found that the only way people can change is for us to engage in an intentional conversation and genuine care for the other person, regardless of our differences. The beauty of this world is…

FI-PrayingForYou

I have some mixed emotions after realizing last night there was all this news discussion based on a newspaper in NY that quoted Republicans about their thoughts and prayers. I won’t even quote the headline because of its intent. I’m not going to focus on the content of the story because we are not going to have a political debate here.

Recent events in the US has many people on the edge of their seats. I have never seen emotions so high as they have been this year.

Racism is truly disgusting and appalling. When we hear someone say racist things, most of us get angry inside. It’s natural to think that way for me, but it wasn’t always so. Until I saw what a lack of love actually does to people, I didn’t understand. My mom and dad did not raise me to think bigoted or racist, which I am forever grateful. However, the influence and constant surroundings of where I lived brought on a subconscious that leaned…

At times we look at some young people and wonder why they are so much trouble. We tend to look at them from a bird’s eye perspective and cast a judgement on them because we don’t like the way they act or that they have a lack of respect for others. We hold them in contempt by not letting our children go near them. We hold them in contempt by not associating with the family. Just like Jesus would do…NOT! I…
