One Human Family

God forgive us. God forgive me.

Penny's story of being treated like crap by people who claim to love God ripped into my heart. I cannot stand to see someone hurt. I especially can't stand to see someone hurt at the hands of people who are called to love.

What has happened to us? How did "Christians" get so far from your mandate of Love God, Love Others.

It's so simple and yet we bring our own biases in, our own "righteous anger." And people are hurt.

God, teach us to love. Teach us to walk alongside of our fellow humans in this 'One Human Family.' Help us to focus on caring for the poor and oppressed, loving each person as if they were our own child. God give us your eyes and your heart. God Help Us.

Hey that's a really cool picture. Where did you get that? Maybe I'll get a tattoo with that phrase on it, or something. Seriously though, what an awesome motto. If we could all live like we are part of One Human Family, (not even to mentioned that it's God's family) then maybe we'd handle life - people - a little better. (Although the way we sometimes treat even our own family members, who knows?!) Oh boy!

Tatoo? For a real? A real, inky, permanent tatoo?
