Let me begin with a thoughtful sigh. Much of our news has revolved around two themes in recent days – racism and sexuality. We’ve buried one flag and hoisted another. I see reason to celebrate and reason to grieve.
Oh, that we would lay our allegiences to rest before the glory of the Holy One; that pride might flee in the presence of Jesus’ love, in the presence of humility; and that we could look upon His bow in the sky and again think first of that promised and realized victory in Christ. This is my prayer today.
You have given a banner to those who fear You,
That it may be displayed because of the truth.
