What True Fellowship Feels Like

Judaism: What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow man.
Christianity: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Buddhism: Hurt not others in ways you would find hurtful.
Islam: None of you have faith unless he wants for his brother what he wants for himself.

On this particular Sunday, January 29, 2012, Rabbi Peter S. Berg of The Temple in Atlanta, GA came to my church to deliver a soul-stirring sermon that motivated us and ignited our humanitarian gifts. That day I left church feeling full, full of joy and a deep sense of community. This is what worship should feel like. For worship should not only be an edifying experience but also one that empowers us to love unconditionally.

Everyone knows that Sundays are the most segregated day of the week. But why? The scriptures, proverbs, sayings listed above exude the Golden Rule across the board; everyone is worthy of respect. They do not indicate any segregational ideas.  Your church, synagogue, temple is a haven, a place of peace and of love that embraces and nurtures everyone.

My prayer is that Sundays become increasingly less segregated, more loving, and more inclusive.

~Live Healthy. Live Healthy.
