Holiness again has become a major concern among a variety of people. Since people of color around the world have felt violated, they are struggling to restore the sanctity and holiness of God's image within them.

In all these movements is a deep longing for holiness, a yearning to recover the sanctity of the divine image God planted in us. Blamelessness in holiness, however, is much more than a shrill affirmation of our self-worth as we ventilate hostility toward those who have violated us. Because we too have violated others, we need God's forgiveness, which generates love. Luke 7:47. also Matt. 22:37-40.  We are also seeing this in our churches.

For praise and fervent prayer;
How sad when folks let small things break
Their sweet communion there.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The church should always be a warm shelter in a cold world.
