Gather everyone together!

Rev. Dr. Alvin Jackson used to share the image of a tootsie roll pop as being like people. We are different colors on the outside, but as he said, when you get to the inside we are all just the same. While we make make divisions based on what country we live in, which side of the tracks we are on, the color of our skin, the expense of our clothes, and who knows what else, Our Creator values and welcomes each one of us as precious children. Christ died out of love for every single one of us. It is out of this love that we gather together. It is in this love that we find our unity. This Holy Love breaks down all barriers so that we may be One.

BLESSINGS ON WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY!
