Today, the day after the 2018 mid-term elections, is one that many will find divisive, confrontational, and critical for their political party, here is a prescient message relevant to what may seem like a battle for the soul of the nation. Bishop Michael Curry encourages us as Christians to live the unconditional love that Jesus taught.
Jesus didn’t just lay down his life for his friends, but for those who opposed him as well! When he told the story of the good Samaritan, Jesus was teaching what true unconditional love looks like.
As we wait the final midterm election results today, let us reflect on Jesus’ message of not condemning your neighbors — not even the ones you intensely dislike or hate — but instead, loving them, caring for them if it is in your power, and most of all, praying for their wellness and that Holy Spirit will guide their decisions with Love.
Bishop Curry talks about all this and more and how we can heal the Church and the World with the Power of Love (and his book of the same name) and Reclaiming Jesus on this A1 podcast from Troy Public Radio.
