Parents, siblings, aunts and uncles...You’re committed. You’re bound by deaths, births, and a history of “story” that’s uniquely your own. You’re committed because you’re blood. At CCF, we have something special here - a sense of family that embraces “other” because we share the commonality of Jesus’ blood. We’ve been adopted by the same Father.
As a Christian I must fight for justice. I must love as Christ loved, without expectation and regardless of reciprocation..regardless of my victories, disappointments and even hurt; that I would remember that it's not with my might or power but with the spirit that I will be able to continue to advocate no matter the cost.
If there is time, there is grace, hope and mercy. May we be like John and speak as a voice in the wilderness.

When we consider the people that God has allowed to be in our lives, our schools, jobs, families, etc, do we judge them just like the Pharisees did or do we embrace them in whatever journey they are in their lives? Are we clear demonstrations of Jesus?
We are called to slow down, to pray, to listen, connect, affirm, and ultimately welcome our neighbors.
