Weekend Update

Weekly Truth

My weekly truth was inspired by one of my favorite authors, Jen Hatmaker. Her book, For the Love has so much goodness in it, if you haven't read it yet, you need to.

In light of all that has transpired over the past few weeks with these presidential debates, I thought this message was appropriate. Her words are filled with so much wisdom and written so well. She is so on point with this issue. I want to share with you another part of her book, because it's exactly what I am feeling, but couldn't get out into words. She does it beautifully.

"I hope our community is marked by grace and affirmation instead of defensiveness and exclusivity. Sure, some wander down paths we don't understand, but there is room in the neighborhood for all of us.

I want to be ever for you, and you for me. Let's lay down our junk, our wonky junk that messes up relationships and community and togetherness."

                                                                                                                                 For the Love by Jen Hatmaker

Basically, lets agree to disagree and respect that we all have our own beliefs and opinions about things in life. Let's stop pushing our own agendas and love one another for who we are, not for what we believe or the decisions we make. We need to learn to come together more and build relationships filled with love. Let's stop tearing each other down and start cheering each other on!
