Our Bishop will be bringing a message of hope in troubled times on Pentecost Sunday. The Sunday that celebrates the birth of the Church.
We live in a world of conflict. People hate each other. But Jesus tells us to love each other. Are there any limits to this love? We want to know who is our neighbor so we can put borders around who we must love. So who is our neighbor? Who must we love?
There are some Christians who think that if someone doesn’t believe exactly like they do their salvation is in question. Is this true? Do we need to say certain words to make sure our salvation is not in question? Christians give different answers to these questions. Our answer depends on how wide is God’s mercy?
