"I'll put it as urgently as I can: You must get along with each other. You must learn to be considerate of one another, cultivating a life in common." 1Cor. 1:10MSG "The GOAL is for all of them to become one heart and mind--Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, so they might be one heart and mind with us. Then the world might believe that you, in fact, sent me.....Then they'll mature in this oneness, and give the godless world evidence that you've sent me and loved them in the same way you've loved me." John 17:21,23 MSG In all of this hate, shouting and not listening to one another, have we lost sight of the goal? Isn't our individual goals to grow and mature to be more like Christ, more love, more compassion, more peace? And then, isn't our common goal of loving one another, the way to show the world who God is and how much He loves each of us in all the world? This was the premise for the exercise of charcoal drawing.
