May Love be the light and Grace be the compass that reveals the way forward toward The Beloved Community.
an excerpt from Pulpit of Peace
This little pocket-size book is a collection of quotes from my sermons, musings and poems. It is an honor to be able to share Pulpit of Peace with you! It will be available worldwide next week! Special thanks to supporters and sponsors of Matrika Press.
I have a lot of friends across this country who are Republicans. We may not agree on all things – But Not a single one of them is a racist, a misogynist, a bigot, or any of the other things they are being called because they voted for Donald Trump. Each one is a decent human being, loving and kind and deserves to be treated with respect. I am appalled and dismayed at how many of my fellow liberals are reacting to the election results in violence.
Violence comes in many forms – it begins in our hearts and minds, expands to our words and actions.
Those behaving violently by inciting riots, causing physical harm to people and property and also by verbally beating down those who voted differently including via social media – – none of this is ok.
It needs to stop. The violence in all its forms needs to stop.
Be the Peace you want to exist in the world! Please.
Someone’s heart is breaking
Someone’s soul is soaring
Someone’s mind is racing
Let us together remember
to create the space to hold all this
and create a world of hope and blessing
