As Christians, we are called to be peacemakers and to break down walls that divide us. We refuse to label people. We are called to extend the hospitality of God and live in beloved community with our neighbors.
We are called to demonstrate the love that Jesus embodied. While it is easy to love our neighbors, in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus tells us to also love our enemies and those who hurt us. This is only possible through the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
