Quote of the Day – M. Shawn Copeland
“If my sister or brother is not at the table, we are not the flesh of Christ. If my sister’s mark of sexuality must be obscured, if my brother’s mark of race must be disguised, if my sister’s mark of culture must be repressed, then we are not the flesh of Christ. For, it is through and in Christ’s own flesh that the ‘other’ is my sister, is my brother; indeed, the ‘other’ is me…”
From Enfleshing Freedom, by M. Shawn Copeland, 2009
Words to consider as we come together in communities for worship.
Who isn’t here? Why not? What do we need to do to be welcoming communities for all of God’s people?
