I am called by love. The kind of love tied to a belief in shared humanity and a deep sense of interconnection. The kind of love that pushes us to consider our neighbor and the state of the world, that pushes us to feel deeply about the plight of another. The kind of love that knows no boundaries, that sees difference as an asset—an opportunity for transformation—which allows for a wide understanding of truth and meaning and is transformed by the exchange with others. The kind of love Rev. Thandeka would claim as “Love beyond belief,” love rooted in personal experience and relationship such that when I feel filled up by love I am compelled to send it outward into the world.
