It seemed a long time coming, but some things are worth waiting for. This peony finally bloomed today.
The bud of a peony begins smaller than the tip of a pinky finger. But when it finally opens…behold its magnificence!
Acceptance, reconciliation, and grace for all God’s people is even more beautiful.
Break down the walls and let it be so, so that all of us may say together, “Finally!”

Look closely at the faces in the picture above. Look at those smiles! These are the faces of people who have taken to heart the United Methodist tag line, “Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.” My Sunday school class, the Kairos Class at Belmont United Methodist Church, officially became a Reconciling Class and joined the Reconciling Ministries Network today.
