Loving Our Neighbor
by Devon McCoy on October 15th, 2021
If God calls us to love our neighbor, how do we apply that command to vulnerable people groups? The concept of loving our neighbor as ourselves when it comes to vulnerable people groups is applicable in many contexts, but in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, this blog post will explore what it means under the context of the mass migrations of Latin Americans to the U.S. border.

My Papa died from heart failure this time last year. His death was painful, leaving an empty void in our lives: the absence of a husband for Grammy, a father for my mom, and a spiritual role model for me. Growing up, he was the man I looked up to for my faith. After leading my dad to Jesus, Papa became the rock for my family's biblical knowledge. When my family stopped going to church, and no one ...  Read More

When I was growing up, sometimes my dad would go all day wearing his shirt inside out. He usually didn’t realize it until he came home and saw himself in the mirror or until my mom noticed and immediately began roasting him for it. Needless to say, he’s not a big fashion guy. I’m sure we can all relate to this at some level. Maybe you look in the mirror and realize you’ve had a piece of lettuce st...  Read More
