As I think through who I am, I reaffirm I am a child of God and I am a member of the family of God. This family supports me and prays with me, this family offers guidance and advice, which I sometimes listen to and other times ignore. I am not always happy with the family, we tend to bicker and argue and call each other horrible names. I wonder if I could find another family that is more healthy, more together. Alas, there is no such thing as a perfect family, there is no place where all is well all the time. I treasure those moments when we are in harmony, when we can raise our voices and praise God, and the abundant love poured upon us. I love those moments when the walls tumble down, and we connect. Those are precious times, too few, too scarce to take them for granted.
So how can I break through all that separates us? Perhaps by writing a blog and hope it connects us together in this one moment so we are energized to continue to work for a world full of love and peace. That is who I am right now, how about you?
