Photo Prayer / November 2016

Differences I imagine the worst, that our differences will divide us — marriages split, families broken, communities in uproar, civil wars raging in all their uncivil ways, the world at odds with itself, without compromise or understanding. Yet difference does not mean division. Different as they are, see how carbon atoms unite with oxygen and hydrogen to create marvelous molecules. See how other elements join in to form every color imaginable, even in the same living leaf. No, our differences do not divide us, and it is not sameness that brings us together.
