Jesus said, “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.” - John 13:34 (NRSV)
My daughter and granddaughter met a woman named Sophia who needed somewhere to live that was nearer to her place of employment. After discussing cost, rules, and responsibilities, they reached an agreement for Sophia to live with them.
Sophia is an Orthodox Jew, while our daughter and granddaughter are Christians....
With God’s help, I can live in unity and peace with others.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
