I pray that you are well!
Years ago I heard something that was intended to make me laugh, and it did: “I am a Baptist, but I am glad that God is not.”
I have been thinking about the hateful and negative energy that we give to those of different faiths…It is wrong. And our lives and world will not be right until we learn to love, respect and cherish those who have alternate views—of God, in particular…
BISHOP JOHN SHELBY SPONG put it this way…
“God is not a Christian, God is not a Jew, or a Muslim, or a Hindu, or a Buddhist. All of those are human systems which human beings have created to try to help us walk into the mystery of God. I honor my tradition, I walk through my tradition, but I don’t think my tradition defines God, I think it only points me to God.”
God is. And He expresses Himself in countless ways…Our Sisters and Brothers of different faiths and perspectives have a lot to teach us about Him—and ourselves…Let’s not miss our blessings!
I love you! Have a beautiful day!
