These are trying days for so many reasons, not the least of which is the recent tragic death of George Floyd at the hands of one who was supposed to serve and protect. There are many thoughts that come to mind at a time like this but perhaps it is best for us to be reminded of what we believe as Nazarenes. This reminder is not simply an internal document for denominational reference, no, it is a statement that influences the societies in which we live and minister. We uphold and affirm, the rights and privileges of all people everywhere. We are saddened and frustrated that over and over again violations of such rights are perpetrated.
Let us be examples of Jesus...a lot of people are watching, but that is secondary to the fact that God is.
