SHARE YOUR WORLD is a weekly challenge hosted by blogger Cee Neuner. In the challenge Cee asks 4 questions and as we answer them we all share our worlds. Click the link above to see the answers of the world. My answers are below.

Who was your best friend in elementary school (prior to age 12)?

What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
After a week surrounded by much distraction and dissension in our little town, I thought about how I had watched my fellow Christians rise to the occasion with prayer and love in the midst of anger swirling around us. I thought about the grace I had seen from certain leaders in our community including our new pastor. Then this word came to me in prayer.
The power of dissension lies in its focus on self. When we begin to empathize with and focus on others rather than self, dissension dissolves into unity even if disagreement remains.
That inspired me. Thank you Jesus!
