NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS – ONLY OF THE DIVINE!
The first of the four core values from the initiative WMTN that we will seek to embody especially during this difficult time for our nation:
“Respect: We will talk about our fellow citizens on the other side with respect for their intelligence and good will. We will avoid characterizing them as deserving our disdain or pity.”
Spiritually speaking, there are no others. If we are one, then, what we do to another, we do unto ourselves. The practice of “putting ourselves in another’s shoes” might be as close to experiencing Oneness as many of us can get. We’ll explore why “loving our neighbor as ourselves” is the second great commandment that Jesus gave.
Rev. Jean DeBarbieris
