Eye on the world: Loving our neighbor

In “After Dallas, a danger and an opportunity for USThe Christian Science Monitor reports that in the wake of the domestic terrorist attack that killed five Dallas police officers, the United States is at an important juncture for addressing policing and community relations. “As condolences poured in from around the world in the wake of the deadliest United States attack targeting police in nearly a century, there is great concern that building distrust could tear the country’s social fabric.” Therefore, now is the time for community leaders, police, politicians, and a diverse representation of society to come together to heal the rift that has boiled over into violence. As the Monitor writes,“The Dallas attack may present a new opportunity for Americans to think more deeply about addressing systemic problems ….” No matter the demographic makeup of our own community, we can be a part of the healing by following the master Christian’s call to “love thy neighbour as thyself” (Matthew 22:39).
