Mark 5:21-34

It is without question that we are not all the same. There is no shortage of things that distinguish us from one another leaving us in a world of difference. But difference need not divide us--in actuality we are not as different as we might otherwise think. The things we hold in common will always far surpass any difference that exists amongst us because we are ALL those for whom God so loved and Christ died. The ground is level in the shadow of the cross.
