Living in the knowledge that we and all people are loved for eternity

At the heart of the Christian journey is realization that God’s love has no limits or boundaries. The process of continually rediscovering this reality is what it means to experience salvation. While followers of Jesus share their faith and hope with those who seek it, the all-encompassing love of God extends to those on other paths and in other places. To deny that God’s love is wide enough to embrace everyone for all of eternity is to deny the foundation of faith: that God is love.

To a Place of Celebration
EBENEZER D ("Why Do Nations Rage Together")

To a place of celebration filled with laughter, dancing, joy,
Came such violent devastation — one man's efforts to destroy.
God, we grieve for loved ones taken; we lament, "What can we do?"
Now, we're feeling lost and shaken; heal our nation! Make us new!
Weapons kill — and so does silence; hear our prayer as we confess:
We have given in to violence, we have bowed to hopelessness.
God, we've lost our sense of vision of a world where there will be
Plowshares made from violent weapons, justice in society.
Give our leade...
