Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
These are divisive times in which we are living. For some time we have been hearing and reading of various protests around our great nation. It almost seems to be promoted in recent days. People have even been paid good money to protest against causes they couldn’t care less about. Animosity and tension is being stirred up to little or no avail.
The political scene is not the only landscape where anger is manifested. There’s fighting in the streets, in our schools, and even in homes. Families are divided. The workplace often times is a place where frustration is personified. It’s seems peace is a rare commodity in this society.
I’m glad to know of one place where unity is promoted and experienced. A place where people from diverse backgrounds can come together and exist peacefully. Skin color is not an issue. Financial status is not a criteria for acceptance. A person’s past is just that; “the past.”
To be in a place where we forget about our differences and come together for a common cause. Where we can forgive and be forgiven. A place where people are real and the presence of God is too. That sounds like a pleasant place. That sounds like a place I want to be. Would you join me there? I’ll meet you this Sunday afternoon at 2:00. Deal?
