Blessing Enemies

Who tells origin stories of their enemies like this (Genesis 21:8-21)? That God reverses our desire to get rid of them? God hears their cry? God promises to make something unimaginably good from and for them and others? And what Christians are aware of the stories of blessing we have for the children of Hagar, the matriarch of the prophet Muhammed, in our own Bibles?! Genesis shows that God already answers Hagar’s cry before she makes it. - Jason Bayassee

We are called to live with the kind of integrity that values both truth and the person with whom we are debating truth. - David Lose

The Pledge:

While interacting with members of my own faith,
or ethnic, or gender community, or with others,
if I hear hateful comments from anyone
about members of any other community,
I pledge to stand up for the other
and speak up to challenge bigotry in any form.
