A Thought: Blessing amidst Diversity. Last night I had the privilege of being among several Little Rock clergy leading the InterFaith Thanksgiving worship service. What a blessing it was in these trying times to feel God’s Presence in unity of spirit as hundreds were gathered at the Islam Center of Little Rock. Scriptures were both read and sung from the Koran and Bible, songs, stories of Jesus, prayers and litanies were shared to all faiths gathered there. As I looked out on the crowd, faces held expressions of hope, thanks, and commitment to care for all. Ps. 100 says, ” Worship the Lord with gladness.” That aptly describes last night’s gathering.
This picture was taken by Asbury’s Kenna Westerman, and is our logo and Rose Window at Asbury UMC. It symbolizes diversity in color and symbols of faith, and reminds me of the beautiful experience from worshipping with others. Have a meaningful Tuesday, and be safe out there!
