With Heart, Soul, and Mind:

As 2017 Begins....

There's one statistic that's still stuck in my head:
We're 50% Blue, and 50% Red.
Our divisions are clearly tearing us apart,
Which raises the question: How is it with your heart?
So where is God in this whole situation?
What really matters? Will we live as one nation?
 And who are our neighbors in your worldview?
Is our country for everyone...or only for those just like you?
Simple rhymes will not change us until we confess
That we need one another to clean up this mess.

As the New Year begins, will we answer the call?
We're to love God, neighbor, friend, stranger...yes, we're called to love all.
Let us walk in the light of God's love,

Spirit Alive is a twice a month blog and email by Rev. Lowell Greathouse, Mission and Ministry Coordinator for the Oregon-Idaho Annual Conference. It seeks out where the spirit is alive in our congregations and communities.
