No Time For Hate
(Rev. Dr. John Dorhauer)

“Every day I show up and every day I overcome my anger and my hopelessness and every day I perform my little toil of love. That, I deem, is large enough for me. “

What is the “little toil of love” that you are called to?

I had no time for hate.
The grave would hinder me.
For life is not so ample
I could finish enmity.

Nor had I time for love.
But, since some industry must be
My little toil of love, I deem
Is large enough for me.

(Emily Dickinson)
