nonviolence is a lifestyle

Martin Luther King, Jr.:

Jesus said that if we hate a person we have already committed murder in our hearts. There are far too many of us who need to ask for forgiveness for carrying murder in our hearts.

As Christians we are asked to love without limits, and to be bearers of grace and reconciliation in every situation. We need nonviolent spirits. We need the peace of Christ in our hearts.

a concise lesson in healing

Here’s a powerful and timely message for all of us. There’s precious few of us who do not stand in need of healing. And here is a perfect prescription.

All of us can learn from Gandhi. The truth is still the truth, even when it’s unpopular or even ridiculed. And no one ever needs to apologize ¬†for speaking the truth in love.
