Faithfulness to the Gospel demands nothing less. God will not hold us guiltless for silence in the face of evil.

Bonhoeffer was a German theologian martyred for his opposition to Hitler. His words remind us that authentic spirituality requires a real and costly  discipleship.

one senator’s response…

While the White House waffles and delays any significant  response to the deadliest mass shooting in US history, at least one member of Congress tell it like it is. #BLOTUS and his cronies are not about to antagonize their base by taking action.  Where does it stop?

we always have a choice

This is a critical understanding for the world in which we find ourselves. Our society is sinking ever lower into a culture of anger, bitterness, hate-speech, disrespect, fear-mongering and deceit.

We may not be able to control the actions of those around us, But, we can always choose how we respond. We always have a choice.

Basic morality, basic decency, and mutual respect should be the norms that provide the framework for our society. I, for one, choose to live by those norms.

I am saddened to see those that speak and act in an intentionally divisive manner, purposely working to weaken and even break our bonds of community. But, I have a choice.  And I choose to live and act in the knowledge that all of us are one global family.

I choose to live in love. What about you?
