Meaning, healing and belonging: three simple words that capture what we’re longing for in these days when violence and prejudice capture the headlines.
God is not done with us even when all that’s left is a dimly burning wick
While dominant culture and its systems will regularly seek to marginalize and dehumanize certain groups and individuals, the Christian way, the Jesus movement, imagines another possibility.
We know what it’s like to realize the limits of our own power and be brought to our knees pleading for mercy. We seek the creative life giving word of God to speak healing into our lives.
The good news is simply this—we no longer need to be captive to the forces that demand that we figure out whose fault it is—whatever has gone wrong.
The antidote to the game of ‘who’s right’ is the Jesus movement with its focus on forgiveness, feeding and healing.
Which way does God come to you most powerfully? Is it in what you apprehend? In what you reason through? In what you intuitively ‘get’?
God’s favoured folk are not just the righteous and good living but also the scoundrels and tricksters—God works through many different kinds of people.
