Thinking on today’s reading from Acts…
What does my faith give me the freedom to do? How does my faith free me from prisons of my own making, or that the world has imposed upon me? What does my faith empower me to do?
My faith frees me to believe in love. To dare to hope and stand for justice. To say, “the things of this world are not enough, I want more. I want to be a better person. I want to be pro-human.”
