Food for Thought. . .
Julia Wade set up the following video during our prayer service prior to our monthly vestry meeting. Her words and the video are well worth your attention.
What About Jesus?
A Washington lawmaker asked Jim Wallis a question over breakfast that has stayed with him. The legislator is a Christian, but was having a hard time understanding the message and motivation of the evangelical “advisers” to President Donald Trump. He posed the query, “What about Jesus?”
As Jim Wallis wrote:
“What do these evangelicals do with that question as they listen and talk with and for Donald Trump? Would Jesus talk this way about immigrants, act this way toward women, use such divisive language of racial fear and resentment, show such a blatant disregard for truth, prefer strong-man to servant leadership, and really say that one country should be “first?” What do we do with Jesus? That is always the right question, including when it comes to politics, and especially if we say we are followers of Jesus Christ.”
