DAVID B. HAIGHT, 1982
Then are we not commanded to cultivate
and even a kinship
with every human being on earth?
Whom would you bar from your circle?
We might deny ourselves a nearness to our Savior
because of our prejudices of
neighborhood or possessions or race—
attitudes that Christ would surely condemn.
Love has no boundary,
no limitation of good will.
There is no room
for the disciples of Christ
to pass judgement or
black, white, yellow, red,
or any individual different than
on this earth.
as I have loved you."
