“Where Color, Scorn, or Wealth Divide”

April 27, 2013

“In every insult, rift, and war,

where color, scorn, or wealth divide,

he suffers still, yet loves the more,

and lives, though ever crucified.”

— verse 4 of Christ Is Alive

Jesus wasn’t kidding.

He meant it when he said, “I am with you always.” (Matthew 28:20)

In times of disruption, division and death, it’s still true.  This verse of the next Easter hymn in the hymnal we’re working our way through makes that clear.

In every insult, rift and war”  covers a lot of experiences, even yours and mine.

It also includes people on both sides of those exchanges, whether we’re the perpetrators or the recipients.

Sure slows me down a bit, how about you?
