Feet stepped on...
Uncomfortable at times...
But a message that needs to be spread across the world in homes, churches, neighborhoods and schools...
The Justice Conference challenged me in different ways to look at myself, my community, and others. Before attending the conference I thought I was doing a great job loving like Jesus and loving my neighbor. Now, I KNOW I have improvements to make to truly live out the Gospel.
I've been challenged to look at the history of this country, it's origins and founders.
I've been challenged...to the core...to reevaluate the way of show love and treat others.
I've been challenged to get to the root of the Gospel instead of creating and making band aids without treating the root cause of the issues facing me and others.
I've been challenged to love as Jesus loved...NO EXCEPTIONS!
I've been challenged to listen more, talk less and build others up.
I've been challenged to be last, so one day I can be first.
I've been challenged to "find my riot".
I've been challenged to go closer to truly understand others.
I've been challenged to not be afraid...we are ALL human!
I've been challenged not to be silent when we see a brother being ridiculed.
I've been challenged to be a person that loves anyway!
The weekend was full, challenging and uplifting. As I process what I've learned, I know one thing...
...the work continues and I'm going to do my part!
