VERSE OF THE DAY

GENESIS 5: 1-2 (NRSV)

This is the list of the descendants of Adam.  When God created humankind, he made them in the likeness of God. [2] Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them "Humankind" when they were created.

Their kind.  Our kind.  It takes all kinds.  But God created us all as part of humankind.  I remember the details of the morning of September 11th, 2001.  Watching CNN in disbelief.  Not fully understanding what was happening.  In that moment, we were all humankind.  We prayed for our neighbors, we connected with our loved ones.  Let us never forget.  Let us always remember.  We are all created in His likeness.  We are all part of the same kind.
