What began as a frustration turned into a blessing.
Something I’ve prayed about and worked on for months finally happened.
Loving God & Loving Others
To state it simply – Divisiveness.
Race. Gender. Sexuality. Religion. Status… Differences tossed around and used to stir up anger and hatred.
Years ago I sat with a group of friends in a heated conversation that was getting ugly. I remember finally adding my opinion, “BE NICE!” (I know obnoxious, right?)
I really do love a good debate. Life is more interesting when we share our views and opinions. However, and it’s a big however . . . I believe it’s possible to debate with gentleness and respect. As Rev would say, “That’s practically downright Biblical.”
Disagreeing is fine. Hatred and division is frustrating.
Like often happens with frustration and prayer, I had an idea. Could there be a way to put people with differing backgrounds, circumstances, and opinions together to write with one common goal. Sharing the thing they all had in common . . . Love for Jesus and His people.
“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” John 13:34
I’ve known the blessing of seeing differences and barriers overcome by the love of Jesus.
That’s the goal of Faith ‘n Friends. To unite people through God’s love. Contributors will share thoughts, tips, stories, and personal accounts of ways Jesus can and will bless our relationships.
We’re hoping you’ll bookmark Faith ‘n Friends. Visit often (or better yet—subscribe), leave comments, follow on social media, and help spread the word.
We want to be a positive voice of the uniting blessing of God’s love in and through Jesus.
Would you please join us in prayer that God will bless the message and our efforts?
We are accepting a few more contributors to Faith ‘n Friends. Both regular contributors and guest posts. You can find out more if you’re interested here.
I can’t tell you how excited I am about the current team. They’re awesome!
