The world changed as a symbol of hate—the Berlin Wall—fell 25 years ago, on the night of Nov. 9, 1989. The German people tore it down in pieces.
It was an irrepressible and unstoppable act of people power that unified Germany and eventually led to the end of Soviet communism and the Cold War,. The fall of the wall is still inspiring two and a half decades on.
Now there are other walls – real and metaphorical – that need to fall.
As the experience in Berlin 25 years ago shows, walls of hate, however daunting, can’t last forever.
“No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.
