This morning, our Pastor addressed the death of George Floyd. I am so glad that he talked about it.
In my heart, I hate racism, but I was afraid that I would say the wrong thing or the sentiments in my heart would not be fully expressed in my words. My heart has been aching as I read posts on social media. I thought, do I, a white woman say something about this? How could any words be adequate to address the pain and hurt? I realized that saying nothing at all will be more hurtful then trying to express love for all.
Our Pastor clearly addressed our current events. Racism is a sin issue. It is wrong. Satan wants to divide us. Satan loves to see us fight with each other.
One day, we will all stand with each other peacefully, before the Lord. People from every nation, tribe and language with stand together equally before the Lord.
A Multitude from the Great Tribulation
After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands
—Revelation 7:9 (NKJV)
God loves us. God values every life. God created each of us to be exactly who we are. God created each of us to look exactly as we do. God doesn’t make mistakes.
we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe
—1 Timothy 4:10 (NKJV)
Our Pastor shared some of the words from an interview with Tony Dungy, a Christian, this morning. He closed with the words, “We just have to pray for our country.”
