Voices of Love
Have you ever heard voices? I hear them all. There are a particular set that are haunting. I hear them saying a variety of things. “I’m innocent.” “Please God!” “Forgive me.” “Why are you killing me?” The voices are too real to be fake.
I saw the horrible crime. Barney Fuller walked next door and killed his neighbors. I hear them too. “Please, don’t kill for us.” “God’s love is enough.” “Stop!” Even the victims know better than killing. Killing can’t never avenge killing. Love is the only thing that can do that.
I can hear Barney Fuller praying. “Love be with those who kill.” “Love be with those I killed.” “Love be with me.” May we learn to pray with him?
The execution of Barney Fuller is scheduled to begin on October 5, 2016 at 6pm.
Love still covers a multitude of sins.
Maybe love will save Barney Fuller.
