Practicing What You Preach in an Age of Hostility

I want to be upfront and tell you that as a church that is dedicated to our mission of working for a more just and peaceful world through nonviolent action, we’re going to offend some people. We can expect that to happen. And here’s where I’m having a hard time practicing what I preach: We proclaim that God loves everyone just as they are, but I’m having a hard time loving people who disagree with me. And, I hate to admit this, but it’s especially the case when it comes to loving family members who disagree. Anyone else have this problem?
