a short primer for the Church

Not the Ten Commandments, for sure, but this is still a nice concise primer on a subject with which theĀ  the church continues to struggle. Perfect love casts out fear. The church’s fear of homosexuality is a perfect illustration of this. We all need more love and less fear.

It is difficult for me to comprehend how the values of our nation have apparently changed. We seem to have thrown away our moral compass and are intentionally fleeing from the responsibilities that have long demonstrated our greatness.

I totally agree that we need to make our nation great again. But endorsing the bullying, selfish, xenophobic, and racist values of the president elect moves us further from that goal. The values of BLOTUS are not the values that will make America (or any other nation) great again.

Have we really come to the place where we have decided hate is better than love? Do we really want to live in fear rather than caring for those most in need? What has happened to our sense of justice for all and compassion for those in trouble?

We definitely need to look into a mirror. We need a rude awaking to see what we are becoming. The United States doesn’t need a wall. We need a heart.
