I read your story and I wanted to tell you that a cloud of sadness surrounded my being. Although the message was written eight years ago I question myself and my Church — “Would this happen today?” I know what comes into my heart and that is the sunshine of my life: God is Love, of that I have no doubt.
But how can I share that love with my neighbour, who sits at my side each Sunday at Church? How can I share God’s love so that our actions are authentic and come from the heart?
My deepest wish is that our Church is the absolutely safest place filled with the love of Jesus in our thoughts, actions and beings towards each other, wherever we have been and whoever we are. Let this love be known to our church members, but also to those who don’t know us.
Peace and Love of Christ be with you,
From someone in Brandon, Manitoba
