Thought for the Week BUILD BRIDGES, NOT WALLS
 
Peter MillBuild Bridges, Not WallsHello again,

Eight alternative designs for Donald Trump’s proposed US-Mexico border wall were unveiled this week, once again raising questions in the Senate about who was going to pay for it.

Of course, building walls to separate one group of people from another is nothing new.

Hadrian’s Wall, the Berlin Wall, the West Bank barrier in Israel and the granddaddy of them all, the Great Wall of China, are all attempts to keep people out (or hold them in).

Many people, both agnostic and religious, believe there is another great wall; one that separates humanity and God.

The reality is that people, not walls, keep us apart from God and each other. So God, in his love and mercy, sent his son Jesus Christ to fix it. The bible tells us that “Jesus is the embodiment of our peace, sent once and for all to take down the great barrier of hatred and hostility that has divided us so that we can be one.” (Ephesians 2:14, The Voice)

By dying for all people, Jesus tore down the wall of hatred and bitterness. Through him it is possible for us to mend fences with one another and have direct access to God. Thanks to Jesus, we can stop putting up walls and start building bridges.
All the very best,
Peter Mill
