Love Rising Up, To Break Every Chain – Believe Out Loud

Ahhh. My eyes glistened with mercy tears as I read the following words, barely being able to comprehend that such a message would come from the Church – this entity I’m called to love and participate in, but who has burned me something awful a time or too.

Redemption.
Life.
Bubbling over with the hopeful promise of what is stirring, what could be, what I dream of for Jane and I’s sake along with our future babes who will sit next to us on Sunday morning.

The author, Rev. Dr. Sidney Fowler from the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Washington, D.C. stated,

“We are coming not only out of the closet, but by God’s good grace jumping out of death’s tomb singing: ‘There is love rising up and it’s here to break every chain, break every chain.’ Let us not seek the living among the dead. Step away from the tomb and out into the world where the Risen Christ is alive. God is with us. We are not alone.”
