Advent Word/Day Seven
Unity means coming together, being whole, not being divisive. It seems like a pipe dream these days – although we like to think that this season brings people together, uniting them toward the vision of peace on earth and good will toward men.
It should be simple…being united for peace, for equality, and for the rights of all. And being united against racism, against misogyny, against homophobia, and against fear mongering. When we unite with each other for love and against hate we work to create the beloved community that greats like Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lewis and Jesus himself espoused, in this and every season.
