God’s Family

Pastor Marvin Arnpriester

“We are made for goodness. We are made for love. We are made for friendliness. We are made for togetherness. We are made for all of the beautiful things that you and I know. We are made to tell the world that there are no outsiders. All are welcome: black, white, red, yellow, rich, poor, educated, not educated, male, female, gay, straight, all, all, all. We all belong to this family, this human family, God’s family.” —Desmond Tutu

I am wondering what might happen, what might change if we not only believed what he says, but began to practice that attitude in our relationships with every person we came in contact with? How might we better put into practice the full inclusion of all persons?
