At the same time, we are called, no matter how tough it is, to share compassion, justice, love and care for each other because we are all human beings. How we act and who we are as people matters regardless of what side of the issue we are on. This is about people. This is about fear. This is about trust. We want and hope to see the best in someone else just as they need that from us. The story is ours to tell. How we treat one another, especially when we are hurting and afraid really does make a difference. Who cares? I do because I know that love starts with us.
We are called to live our best lives; to love each other just as we are loved by God. As this new year begins, I pray we will each let love shine through. God calls us to live out of grace and hope. Risk love. Risk living. This time will mark us forever but as we find peace in our hearts and homes this year, so will joy find us.
