I hold this truth in mind and heart—we are all brothers and sisters.
The Lord’s Prayer begins with the words “Our Father.” Authors Richard and Mary-Alice Jafolla wrote, “Those two words alone contain just about everything we have to know about ourselves and our relationship to God and to each other. This one small phrase tells us we are all created by and loved by the Creator, which makes the entire human race brothers and sisters in the truest sense of the words.” I hold this truth close in mind and heart: We are one. Whether biological family, close friends, or familiar acquaintances, I welcome all into my heart as my spiritual family. With an open mind and unlimited love, I pray for the peace, health, safety, and goodness of all of my brothers and sisters.
For in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith.—Galatians 3:26
