Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘Honoring Our Neighbor’s Faith’ published by Augsburg Fortress and edited by Robert Buckley Farlee, Donald Gardner, and Douglas Schmitz.
I pray, “Dear God, there are countless earthly ways to have a relationship with You. How do we better honor our neighbors’ faiths?”
Following my prayer, I opened the book to page 91 where this passage was revealed to me:
“God’s Spirit is ever active in the world and in the church—God will not be conformed to certain historical dogmas. The Spirit breaks down every barrier and every formulation of the faith that would set itself up as the only true expression of the church.”
There might be hatred within the spirit of a neighbor. There is Love within the spirit of a neighbor. We exploit.
