In recent months and owing a lot to my year in Philadelphia I've been learning to put my body in spaces that are in line with my beliefs and my Christian faith. Outside the US Embassy tonight at this peaceful protest I felt hope.
I felt unity in diversity, solidarity,
Care for the stranger & the immigrant,
Care for the widow & orphan,
Care for the Muslim,
Care for the non-Christian & non religious,
Care for the poor & the worker,
care for the racial minority, care for the woman,
care for the LGBTQ member,
Care for the inmate.
Care for the person with disability.
I felt inclusion.
I felt Jesus.
Although these spaces don't bring about change in themselves, they start conversations, strengthen convictions and inspire action. I believe there is hope. I always will.
