The questions that walk with me:
How is it politicians can say they want government out of private lives while seeking legislation that invades bedrooms and bodies? The (anti) marriage amendment and the continued encroachment around choice are an attack on the sovereignty of heart and body.
How is it politicians mouth words about caring about this nation while spending millions to gain office in order to decimate safety nets?
How is it the church is so often silent about justice issues?
How is it the Catholic Bishop and hierarchy create vendetta energy and monies around who is NOT allowed to live married when all families are being shattered by poverty?
What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus?
When will we live compassion? Why spend so much time and passion around demonizing others? When will we spend the energies to claim who we are instead of lobbing out incendiary verbiage about others?
How do United Methodists live into wholeness when our polity proclaims barricades to grace?
How do we live the despair and possibilities of these days?
And, who will go with us?
