There’s an old Christian folks song that proclaims, “They will know we are Christians by our love, by our love; they will know we are Christians by our love.”
As you listen to this StoryCorps story of how a family of eight siblings were reunited by the love of their eldest (and gay) brother after all of them had been driven away for one reason or another by their religiously (Christian?) fanatical parents, you decide whose actions were more loving.
“To love someone is to reveal to them their value and and help them discover that they are precious.”
– Jean Vanier
Whom have I loved today? Friend or family, known or unknown — to whom have I reflected back the unconditional love that God has for each of us — unique, precious, holy and always beautiful in the eyes of the Divine?
