Even Scripture notes that in 1 Corinthians 12: 26a (“If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it”). We are connected – one to the other. Like it. Or not.
Whether our connection is as family by blood, adoption, marriage, as friend, colleague or stranger, we are co-sojourners on this fragile planet called Earth. We are connected.
Even though we may … speak different languages … have different coloured skin … worship in different ways … have differing political beliefs … live out our lives as straight or LGBTQ … are similar or different in other ways, we are connected.
To lose sight of that connection-reality is to forego our common humanity.
How we … support those for whom paralyzing fear engulfs
How we … love those with whom we have opposing views
How we … respect others who voice their concerns and protest
could be the determining factor of the future of our world.
We are connected. Like it. Or not.
