We Are All One!

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. -- Galatians 3:28

The love of Christ calls us to pursue God's justice for all people.  But the love of Christ sees no distinction.  We're protesting on behalf of all humanity: the poor and the suffering first and foremost, as we are called by Christ.  But we also protest on behalf of politicians, bankers, tycoons, cops, soldiers, TEA Partiers, criminals, terrorists, middle-class Americans, Union members, the Koch brothers, and on and on.  This action is about WAKING UP.  We can no longer found our justice on absolute isolation masquerading as freedom.  We need to found our justice on true freedom: absolute love.  That love knows no boundaries.

And it's contagious.  Here's a post from Protest Chaplain Julia Capurso:

This awesome cop coached our sidewalk protesters.
"They need practice!...Stand together so you look stronger...Keep your feet movin'..."
