enriching the journey

enriching the journey
other faiths, traditions
all of us on a path
each one seeking God.

we deepen our understanding
exploring with others
seeing God more clearly
through another’s eyes.

joining together
iron sharpening iron
challenging weak assumptions
growing in faith.

we have a gift, precious,
communion with others
each on our own journey
the pathway of faith.

coming together
from different faith traditions
we can learn so much
if we will only listen.

Post by Upper Room Devotional Guide to their Facebook today:
“God Calls Us to Love Not Judge”
I have seen several other pieces on the internet about
the back story to some of the people we judge,
 how we don’t know what they have been through or
are going through.
