What color is God?

I am really peeved today. Someone had the audacity to pollute my newsbox with some literature that I find very disturbing. It was a monthly newsletter put out by the KKK. In all my years of living in the South I was never insulted with such things but I move up north and look what happens. I'm hoping that they are weak and this is their way of looking for new members. Well, they are not going to find one here!!

God created us all in his image. ALL! Not some. So what color is God? God is the soft colors of generosity, compassion, and forgiveness. The bright colors of joy, kindness, and benevolence. The pale color of humility and charity. God is the color of LOVE.

Enough said.

The Klan? You're kidding? They're still around? I knew they were big in Oregon at one time (my home state), which surprised a lot of people, but I figured, except for isolated spots in Idaho, they'd mostly vanished. I try to tell my kids that the important thing to remember about black people (or asian, hispanic, etc.) is that they are EXACTLY like white people. That's all they need to know.

I haven't seen any of these emails, but then I just click delete on junk mail and move on. Maybe I missed it...

Yikes @ the KKK sending junk to your inbox!
I like your blog Pat...and your user name 4evergapeach! I useta live in Joe-Ja a few years ago and I absolutely loved it!!! LOVED IT! Way nicer than living in the cold north.

I've bookmarked ya...I'll definately be back!

As far as what color my GOD is....I think he's translucent. He's like a chameleon. Forever changing and adjusting to help us feel like we fit in.

Here's a post I did a while ago...you might enjoy reading it.

I remember when I was a teenager the local kkk had a "parade" in our town. We all came out and threw eggs. Not very grown up, but I think they got the picture.
I didn't know they were into emailing things.
I liked what you had to say about the color of God. That was cool.
