When asked what the greatest commandment was Jesus replied, "You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, and with all your mind.This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: You must love your neighbor as you love yourself" (Matt. 22:34-40; Mk. 12:28-34; Lk. 10:27). As followers of Jesus, we seek to live out our mission to declare and demonstrate God's boundless love for all by loving our neighbors through acts of mercy and justice. Our ultimate hope is in the coming of God's reign on earth. And yet, we believe that God cares deeply about how we live our lives. We pray that our acts of mercy and justice would be glimpses of God's coming reign where peace, love, justice, and inclusion reign without inhibition (Rev. 7:9-17).
