Good Morning Church Family,
I would like to start by saying that I do not intend on turning this into a political debate about what is going on right now. As such, comments for this post will be disabled. This is not a reflection of Apathy, far from it. Part of my personal testimony revolves around how loving, caring, and supportive Franklin Street has been throughout my entire life.
I have never agreed so profoundly with a message from a pastor and this needs to be shared and heard. Christ’s love is for everyone regardless of race, gender, or creed. I have seen many people from all walks of life receive the Holy Spirit because of Christians who were called by the great commission. Love your brothers and sisters. Listen to their cries to be heard.
Rioters are not a reflection of peaceful protesters asking for a voice, they are not the same. Police officers who abuse the law and show excessive force and violence are not a reflection of those who stand devoting their life to our safety and justice, they are not the same. What is the same is that we were all pardoned for lives filled with sin and darkness.
Please pass the love that you were given on to someone else who needs it.
