What I'm hearing these days coming from so many in this country is just sad and troubling...even if understandable. The age old adventure in missing the point is alive and well and being stirred vigorously. People are still preoccupied with and living in fear of the wrong kind of bondage.
I understand why people are pissed off but the way the anger and fear is being exploited and channeled is not going to be helpful...at least when it comes to what we are really in need of, the freeing of our hearts, our souls and our minds. Grace and love are the only things that have the power to change us as individuals and in turn change the game. I get the sense that the momentum of the anger train will not be able to be stopped at this point, but with that being said, I will not let it distract me nor detour me from the only path forward that makes any sense to me anymore.
If we want to continue to go down the road of law we must remember that the law must be applied to ourselves in the same way we desire it to be applied to all the others. And to be completely honest...I have yet to meet anyone who lives like that. I'm not interested in a revolution that has as it's fundamental principles the idea that law is the answer when it was love and grace and mercy that was sent into this world to set people free.
"If you ever get a chance to hang out with Mack, you will soon learn that he's hoping for a new revolution, one of love and kindness---a revolution that revolves around Jesus and what he did for us all and what he continues to do in anyone who has a hunger for reconciliation and a place to call home. This is not a revolution that will overthrow anything, or if it does, it will do it in ways we could never contrive in advance. Instead it will be the quiet daily powers of dying and serving and loving and laughing, of simple tenderness and unseen kindness, because if anything matters, everything matters. And one day, when all is revealed, every one of us will bow our knee and confess in the power of Sarayu that Jesus is the Lord of all creation, to the glory of Papa."
