The people who dwell on this earth in this generation have a great responsibility to stand together for truth, for justice, for righteousness and for peace; ours is a sacred task that must not be taken lightly. Regardless of race, color, creed, national origin or sexual orientation we are called on to think rationally, to move intentionally, to act responsibly and to love unconditionally. We can – and must – effect real change in our world. But let us remember that any good there may be in mankind, whatever virtue may be found in us is simply a vestige of the Imago Dei. Mighty dictators have come and gone. Great civilizations have risen and fallen. We mortals have no intrinsic power apart from that which the Almighty has granted us. So let us rise … but let us look to Him for wisdom and strength, to His Spirit for guidance and empowerment, and let us look to Jesus Christ to be our Example, our Inspiration, our Savior and our Very Great Reward. When He is that for all of us, real and lasting change can happen and mankind can begin to embrace the greatness for which we were created!
