Monday Mini-Sermon

The Jesus I find in Scripture blazes a singular path of self-giving love rather than a path of domination over others, be that others within his band of followers, the religious leaders, the Roman authorities or other religions.

His way is one of reconciling love rather than polarizing division. The only ones Jesus excluded were those driven by a spirit of exclusion. And while there are passages that say he is the only way to Godand he is the way we follow at Highlandother Bible passages are clear that God's bigness and love extend to all the earth, to all peoples, to all nations who come in reverence before God.
