So many images and words in recent months: tight lips, furrowed brows, clenched fists, accusations flying faster than truth.
At the beginning of a New Testament survey class, I’m reminded of the world into which Jesus came. Not all that different from what we’re experiencing, except for tweets and few other means of mass communication or mis-information. Large groups of people desperate for a messiah, others determined to hold onto the powers and privileges they enjoy and those open to something or Some One, not of their own making.
Too simple? Perhaps.
But as the country prepares for the “peaceful transfer of power,” as remarkable as that is, not all are at peace. Issues that plagued the time in which Jesus came: taxation, poverty, injustice, inequality beat upon the doors of the houses of Congress and our own.
How is a follower of Christ to live in these times?
What would Love do?
