I ran across this video in my inbox tonight after giving a talk to my Disciples of Christ in Community group on Love and working for the Kingdom of God.  I thought it appropriate. We were talking about Loving the way God loves as a means of pointing toward the new Creation that God is longing to bring upon the world this Christmas as has been the case for these last 2000 years and more.

May we dare stand by one another regardless of nationality, race, gender, sexual preference.  God has called us to the work of building a just Kingdom alongside the Divine and with all the people of the world.  Enjoy and stand by someone and ask them to stand by you and sing the same song to the world.

May there be peace on earth and may it begin with me standing with you.
