“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.
This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.
In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world.
This is the victory

The original post at this link concerned an ugly racist incident at the University of Oklahoma years ago. The university administration lead by President David Boren, promptly investigated and held the perpetrators accountable. Those involved apologized, and made restitution.
Administration, faculty, and students together pledged to make changes to prevent further incidents, efforts which continue through the Office of University Community.

I removed the description of the incident and replaced it with a gallery of campus art that I believe represents the true spirit of the University of Oklahoma.
I took these photos during visits to the campus in Norman, Oklahoma, about 30 miles south of Oklahoma City.
