Snapped this in church today. Noah following along with the reading on the Bible app, while Rob was reading from the Bible. It was interesting to me given all that’s happening in Charlottesville and the truth of the Nelson Mandela’s words as it pertains to learnt behaviour. Noah was following along because that’s what he was taught to do.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” NM
With my brave face on, I’m grappling with lots. What are we teaching our kids by our actions, by our silence, by our words. If you’re not outraged…you are part of the problem.
