Sunday Prejudice or Conviction?

“The difference between a conviction and a prejudice is that you can explain a conviction without getting angry.” — Anonymous

On this Sunday, I often wonder about this. How do I share my beliefs without facing the big questions like a deer in the headlights? Are my ideas convictions or just prejudices in the guise of convictions?

Just as we all are tempted, all have a viewpoint, and all have convictions, we also all have prejudices. These require identification, isolation, and examination. If we can stand behind them, they become (or always were) convictions. If we find that with investigation they begin to unravel and fizzle, then we may call them prejudices and begin to work to end them in our lives.

Prejudice is ugly.

Love is beautiful.

The moon. I’m posting late tonight, trying to get tired so I don’t just lie awake in bed.

I’m sure the moon is out there,

Just like you my love.

Shining bright, an eye watching over me.

Guiding me like the tides,

Closer to you with every beat of my heart.

The stars sing my heartsong

In mighty chorus, a host of angels.

Every night I smile at the moon

Wondering if you are smiling too.
