Application, II

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female,
for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
- Galatians 3:28 (NIV)

Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic,
love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.
1 Peter 3:8 (NIV)
How do apply these commands in the trenches? Unless we strive to understand the depth and breadth of love and all its applications, we will not be able to live it out. Love is not just a good feeling, although He blessed us with the rush of chemicals in our brain. Love is a choice.

". . .we need to become racially literate, not post-racially blind."
- Lani Guinier, Professor, Harvard Law School
I have rarely read a piece about race that I agree with so whole-heartedly. Professor Guinier uses Professor Gates' arrest to encourage us to break out of the 1963 images of race and seek to become "racially literate." Originally an op-ed piece from The Chronicle of Higher Education, it was reprinted in the Harvard Law School website.
