“…Love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside…” Lin-Manuel Miranda
I want to imagine a world free of haters and ignorance. Today it’s very hard. But it will happen.
Neither Erin nor I heard the terrifying news, but we felt something horrible had happened. We continued to feel the oppression as we drove through the amazing Colorado Monument – even that majesty couldn’t shake our uneasiness.
This morning we felt it even deeper, even before hearing the news. Now we understand why. Humankind suffers horrifically again. Neither my feeble words nor my faith will undo the damage done. And yet I live in the hope all our cries to God help someone, somewhere somehow.
There’s no way to express my compassion for the families and friends of those lost and those suffering from this Sunday in Orlando, Florida. But I try.
Regardless how feeble we may feel in the aftermath today, love overcomes evil.
With deepest, heartfelt sympathies to all those who feel each loss, for the communities, friends and families and all of those suffering now.
“When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit.” Ephesians 3:15, 16 (NLT)
