two people reconciling

Day 18 with the Belhar

We believe … that any teaching which attempts to legitimate such forced separation by appeal to the gospel, and is not prepared to venture on the road of obedience and reconciliation, but rather, out of prejudice, fear, selfishness and unbelief, denies in advance the reconciling power of the gospel, must be considered ideology and false doctrine.
— from the Confession of Belhar

The rich and the poor have this in common:
the Lord is the maker of them all.
— Proverbs 22:2 (NRSV)
