Last night, I went to a community prayer service hosted by the church I attend. It was a great time of encouragement.
While looking around the room, I saw a rabbi sitting beside our preacher, a group of nuns from the outskirts of town, and friends from other churches around town. There were different racial and socio-economic groups represented. There were high city officials to people who struggle to make ends meet. A glimpse into Heaven, I'm sure.
We prayed that God would reign in our hearts, for churches, for our community, racial reconciliation, peace, and for God's kingdom to come. We sang songs of reverence and songs that made you get up and want to dance. We held hands. For a moment in time, we were all united. Praying that those moments of complete unity happen more often.
