Each and everyone one of us at some point or place in our lives has lost hope. We hit rock bottom! The thing we hoped for becomes a faint wish or it becomes a distant thought if we are not careful. We have battled all year long and now we can’t see anything good coming from it.
Black lives matter! Blue lives matter! Brown lives matter! All lives matter! Unfortunately, the message resonating throughout the landscape of America appears to give voice to “no lives matter.” As the world sends a message which belittles human life, we, as a community of faith, must counteract that message with love, hope, and truth.
