Many of us have turned to attack one another as we react to fear. A fear we would not have if Love were the master of our lives.
We have to be very careful at all times, but these times are particularly treacherous. There are many trials we are facing, but the main one is our ability to love one another.
When so many people start preaching violence, neglect and exclusion as means to do what is good or build a peaceful community, the darkness of this world is in full effect.
We don’t pick sides, but we must take a stand. Love is our stand.
We are not loving one another by keeping silent to avoid conflict, when our hearts feel strongly against what is being said or done. We can, and should, show our love by speaking peacefully and firmly as we assert our values founded on Love.
We are not called to oppress, but to speak up for Love, forgiveness, compassion, peace – and this not at the expense of others.
We don’t have to speak against anything or anyone. Let’s raise our voices to speak only about the Love that can unite us and not join any other conversation that is focused on dividing us.
