Increasingly, the world seems to be a place of division, competition and war between classes, races, religions and ideologies. Jesus said, Love one another as I have loved you. He said, Love your enemies and do good to those who persecute you. Despite these clear teachings of Jesus, followers of Christ also act and participate in the world in ways which increase division and hatred. We even fight among ourselves. This Sunday, we will consider a way of thinking and living that may make it possible for us to promote a world of understanding, generosity and justice, so that all people may live in peace.
