Whether you’re politics favor Democrats, Republicans, or Something Else, it’s good to know how to handle a firearm.
Whether we’re in the church, or out of the church; whether we’ve never been to church or we won’t go back; whether we worship in Jerusalem, or on a mountain in Samaria–may we all find a place in a just economy where the first are last, and the last are first.
Who the heck knows, I mean REALLY knows, what Jesus said?
Doesn’t matter; I’m for whoever says–
“Love God and your neighbor.”
“You can’t love God and material wealth.”
“God’s reign is within you.”
Wouldn’t it be nice if faith in things like ‘truth’ could be shared by a community as easily as, say, faith in things like ‘rabbits’? While talk of rabbits rarely create great controversy and confusion, truth, no matter how diligently we try to expose it and lay it bare by inspection, discussion, and debate, has great difficulty finding and maintaining such an easily agreeable community. Spiritual kinships, shaped by our agreeable behavior regarding truth and rabbits and all sorts of things are the precious foundations of all we can hope to find sacred in community with others. These spiritual foundations of our kinship with one another are made even more precious by their rarity and fragility.
