Love for Country, Love for Our Neighbors, Love for Ourselves

By Rev. Mindi

This video is going viral on Facebook, thanks to the Ad Council and the campaign #WeAreAmerica. I love what this video is about in general, but there is an underlying message that I think is even more important: our identity--all of who we are--is something incredibly special. And while the title of the video is "Love Has No Labels," the narrative states that, "We know that labels don't devalue us, they help define us, keeping us dialed into our cultures and our beliefs in who we are as Americans."

Perhaps, as Christians, there is something we can learn from this video, as we work to include the great diversity of our communities that we minister with and to. Because our identity is holy and sacred.
