Human Family

This Sunday, at the 125th anniversary of the laying of the cornerstone at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry gave a sermon of love in which he said “Love is not a way, love is not one way, love is the ONLY way”. With recent national events, I’ve personally been having to work extra hard towards loving our enemies as much as we love our friends and families. But Bishop Curry’s call to creating a human family, not just a human race, really made me reevaluate how I personally can do better at loving everyone, especially those I do not get along with. Thanksgiving can be a frustrating time for people traveling home if their families have different political or social views than they do, which is why Bishop Curry’s sermon tonight was both relatable and applicable to the holiday season that is upon us. Choose love!
