Dear St. Lukers,
I write this in the Newark airport waiting for my flight back to Orlando. I am headed back to begin our fifth round of Shalom Sessions. This 8-week study on diversity and inclusion, based on the book of Ruth, is one of my favorite things we do as a church to move us from acceptance into true old testament hospitality (you can still sign up to join us below).
I find myself in my favorite pastime of people watching. I am surrounded by people from all over waiting to come to the big city or fly to other parts of the nation or world. All around is a mosaic of God’s diverse people, different skin tones, languages, types of family and relationships, ages, all restless in their waiting. I am overwhelmed with the deep belief that each person in this room is known by God’s love, each hair on heads have been counted, each tear cried by one of these people is held in the Spirit’s bottle of love, each is called beloved. But I’m struck with the deep pain that we don’t all see one another through those loving eyes of Jesus.
