I’ve had a lot on my mind lately. I am SUPER wrapped up in politics this election cycle. I have concerns about the future of our country and our freedoms if either of the two major party frontrunners become President. If Sec. Clinton is the nominee for the Democratic Party, I have decided to pull back from national party politics. Sec. Clinton has nothing new to offer this country and Mr. Trump, well, he is a whole other kettle of fish.
The passion of my heart is justice; social justice, biblical justice, Christ’s justice. I wish to pursue justice for the least of these, my brothers and sisters, and neither Sec. Clinton or Mr. Trump have much to say on real social justice. I don’t know exactly how i will do this, at this point. But you will not see partisan political postings from me on social media. I will turn off what little corporate cable news I consume. I think it’s time to be a hippie. I want to do what Bishop John Shelby Spong calls “loving wastefully.” I want to hug more and argue less. I want to do more and sit less. I want to live more and wait to die less.
Grace and peace,
