BILL MOYERS AND JEREMIAH WRIGHT

Did any of you get to watch this interview last night? If not and you are interested here it is. I would love to hear what others think about it.

I found it to be very interesting. Who are we going to believe? Who is saying things that resonate with your heart...Pastor Wright or those that have been opposing him in the media?

Kent, thanks for posting that link. The interview put a lot of things into perspective. For me it provided further evidence that the ways of Christ are not the ways of governments of the world.

I read a quote recently from St Francis that I unfortunately didn't copy down. It was about him not trying to fix or change what already is but instead setting up an alternative along side of it.

The St. Francis quote is something like this:

"The best criticism of the bad is the practice of the better. Just move to the side and live differently."

Diane, my move to the side has been that I no longer get caught up in the political process which always made it necessary for me to have a horse in the race which in turn always had a polorizing effect on me. Battle lines are then drawn and in our particular political environment sound bites are used to destroy people and those listening and watching get sucked into it and too often end up being poisoned with the same kind of dangerous narrow "us vs them" thinking.

It hasn't removed me from the process, I'm still fully engaged, but hopefully I am becoming a part in helping others see how destructive the process is to how we see people who think differently then we do or even worse, people demonizing others and making them look like something they are not (which to me sumerizes the political process)
