WE CAN REMIND one another that we are God’s beloved. We have been formed and created by God in our mother’s wombs. We are known by name. Our names have been carved into the crucified hands of God. We are loved with an everlasting love. There is nothing in all creation, nothing in this world or the next, that can ever separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ. Nothing. When we know that we are God’s beloved, we have embarked on the journey toward an authentic Christian spirituality.
