Christians: Unite To Pray

Let’s not let partisan politics separate us from one another and from God.

Let’s pray, and…

When we pray let’s remember that real power in this world — the power to save, to transform, to change — ultimately rests not in political parties or presidents or protests but in the life, the death, and the resurrection of Jesus.

When we pray let’s remember that, through the Holy Spirit, this power dwells within otherwise ordinary people who continue the mission of Jesus: preaching good news to the poor, freeing the captives, giving sight to the blind, releasing the oppressed, and proclaiming the year of the Lord’s favor (Luke 4:16-21).

Dream On

Posted on Friday, September 21, 2012 in Music, Spiritual, Values

The U.S. presidential election is nearing; Tuesday, November 6, 2012. It’s forty-five days away.  Millions of dollars have been spent on the campaigns.

These are the campaign values I’ve heard: accusations and slander, grumbling and judgments, unrest and disharmony, false hopes and empty promises.

I know it’s a dream, but these are the campaign values that I wish I heard:

Let’s be devoted to one another in love.
Let’s honor one another above yourselves.
Let’s inspire one another on toward love and good deeds.
Let’s live in harmony with one another.
Let’s accept one another.
