Amos 3:3- Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction? (New Living Translation)
Herbert Bowen, Jr.
Voices Against the Grain Devotional Writer
Together… Together as one body, one nation, and in heart. Together as a unit or a carefully placed cog in a wheel. Together… A picture that is reminiscent of our country watching the U.S. play in the World Cup. A picture that is reminiscent of our country standing up against social injustice and domestic abuse. A picture reminiscent of a united front to push back the terror that is ISIS. Together is the only way a decision can be made. Together is the catalyst for change, to which the impossible becomes possible. For if together becomes only, our country, our church, and our personhood will be derailed, thwarting our mission, only to see it fall deep within the mire of selfishness. Thus, the time is now to stand as one within the confines the world uses to restrict us. For alone we are feeble, but together we stand formidable. So from hand to hand pass that key and watch as God looses us free. Amen
