What can heal our divided land? Jason Law thinks he has the answer.
Over the past decade, Law, president of World Compassion in Tulsa, Oklahoma, has watched closely as divisive attitudes—political, racial and even theological—have ripped America apart. A lack of love for one another, a lack of honor and respect, he says, have combined to produce a "cancerous effect" on our nation.
Law says it must be stopped. He got together with like-minded believers who have asked the same questions he has: What can we do, and what would it look like if we really worked together?
Thus came the birth of Unite My City, a movement of local churches operating in unity through relationships, prayer, worship and service to transform cities and impact nations. The movement began with church leaders in Tulsa, one of the most racially divided cities in the U.S.
Although cultural walls remain, the healing process in Tulsa, Law says, has been evident.
"A lot of things divide us, but that's not the command from God," Law told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent edition of "Greenelines" on the Charisma Podcast Network. "We're called to a higher calling, and that's to love one another. God called us to disciple nations. Before a city can unite, the church has got to be united.
"I think we're seeing that not only in Tulsa but in other cities and regions with Unite My City. It's helping to create a culture of unity within the church ... [and] creates a culture of love that will draw people to Jesus, like it says in John 17:23."
