  • Today in church the preacher was unconventional.
    He told us to be unconventional Christians. I listened.
    He told us to love. I listened.
    He said we're all part of the genealogy of Christ. We're all connected. I listened.

    All of us. Black, white, Asian, African, Hindu, Muslim, Islamic, Greek, German, Italian, American, everything single one of us is part of the human race, part of the body of Christ, if you subscribe to that belief system, I still love you if you don't. I mean that.

    I love you because you're a part of me and I'm a part of you. Without you the world would be different. Everything within this universe would be slightly at a different tilt without your presence. Isn't that magnificent? You're loved and created for a reason, you have a purpose because you're here, part of this family. Part of the human race.

    I love you. I mean that.
