Make Strong Communities 'V- 'But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves." — James 1:22 Hate surrounds us on every hand. It is easy for hate to manifest itself, nation againft nation, neighbor against neighbor, race against race. It is difficult for most of us to discipline ourselves against involvement, to sit passively on the sidelines without comment or opinion. We should not be content to say that we personally abstain from the practice of hating. We should, rather remember the words of the Lord and the teachings of Christian principles. Knowing what is good, and what is right, we may then be guided to become a doer of good Works, and not just a "hearer" or a sideline-sitter.
