I believe in the awesome power of love as perfected in the person of Jesus Christ.
"In the end, we shall be judged according to how much we have loved."---Saint John of the Cross (1542-1591) Spanish Mystic & Poet
"Jesus did not say, 'If I be lifted up I will draw some'." Jesus said, 'If I be lifted up I will draw all, all, all, all, all. Black, white, yellow, rich, poor, clever, not so clever, beautiful, not so beautiful. It's one of the most radical things. All, all, all, all, all, all, all, all. All belong. Gay, lesbian, so-called straight. All, all are meant to be held in this incredible embrace that will not let us go. All." - Desmond Tutu
