“Master,” said John, we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us.”
“Do not stop him,” Jesus said, “for whoever is not against you is for you.”
– Luke 9:49-50
After I noted in a recent message that September is my favorite month, a friend told me about the song Sweet September. I checked it out on YouTube, and the lyrics tell of a sweet past relationship.
This September we create new sweet memories understanding that, as Jesus taught, “whoever is not against us is for us.” The process for our becoming interfaith instead of just Christian moves ahead. The committee working on our becoming interfaith adopted a concise mission: “Working together for justice.” Note that actions and being in relationship matter, not beliefs and group identity.
Our new logo reflects this:
The logo designed by Tigerlilly Bowlsby boldly puts forth a bright image of diversity in motion together for transformation.
