30 Days of Love: 9/30

Posted by Jeremie Bateman // January 27th 2013 // soundings, Stories and Voices, youth // no comments

The ways in which we can easily share our views have exploded over the past several years.  Between Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Google+ and services that exist that I don’t know about, we have numerous ways to share messages in both text and image.  One of the great outcomes is that people of many backgrounds and faith traditions can share with one another and see our common values, when we might not have interacted much previously, or at least not talked about questions of faith.

As Thirty Days of Love enters its second week – Think Interfaith – the challenge to tweet your faith is an opportunity to share with those who share your faith tradition and to share with those who don’t.

On Day 9, I offer two that resonate with me:

The first comes from Jewish scripture, though I was introduced to it as a Roman Catholic youth active in social justice work.  “And what does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, and love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8

The second is one that Standing on the Side of Love offers for this tweet your faith day that very much encapsulates my view of faith.  ” How many paths are there to God?  There are as many paths to God as there are souls on the Earth.” – Persian poet Rumi

Tweet (or blog or email or pin) your own and put some love out into the world today.

January 27, 2013. Tweet Your Faith.

Standing on the Side of Love has put together a resource to help you tweet out messages from many different faith traditions about the importance of love and justice.  Check it out and tweet some of your own!

If images speak to you more, head over to the UU Media Collaborative on Facebook and browse their images for your Facebook, Tumblr or Instagram.
