Building Unity| The Rev. Philip DeVaul
"The way of Love has never been easy, has never been uncomplicated. Throughout our history, joy and sadness have sat side by side in the Christian heart like two faithful people sharing a pew. The God of Love is big enough to hold us in the complexity of our feelings about our current context. After all, as James Baldwin wrote, “Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle; love is a war; love is a growing up.” Just as this church built in Love holds us in the complexity of our growing up into Christ, we are meant to hold and behold our own complexity with steadfast tenderness and loving honesty."
