Together in Faith: "But I say to you that listen, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. If anyone strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also; and from anyone who takes away your coat do not withhold even your shirt. Give to everyone who begs from you; and if anyone takes away your goods, do not ask for them again. Luke 6:27-30
Each of us is God’s beloved daughter and son; each of us is God’s steward of creation, of our world and all its inhabitants; with each of us, we hope God is well pleased.
