Seeing beyond racial stereotypes

When a spiritual view of man takes over, barriers of fear and misunderstanding begin to dissolve.

I was on vacation in an unfamiliar city and had inadvertently wandered into a minority neighborhood. As a stranger there I felt a fear that I wanted to resolve in a healing way. I realized I had to see that my own and everyone's well-being wasn't merely dependent on time or place. From a spiritual standpoint, safety is based on man's inseparability from God, on the eternal coexistence of God and man as loving Father and loved child.

The Lord's Prayer, given to us by Christ Jesus, provides a standard by which our response toward others can be measured. This prayer begins, "Our Father which art in heaven," acknowledging God as the universal Father of all.
