Bent trees: Two gems from the Nazarenes United for Peace Facebook page this morning, reminding us of the true nature of the Church as a political force in the world. We are called to be different. #bent trees.
“The reality is that for many Christians, we’ve allowed our politics to inform our theology rather than our theology and faith in Christ informing our politics.This is a critical time – not just for prophetic courage to speak truth to power – but courage for deep introspection.”
“The Church is not to be found at the center of a left/right political world. The Church is to be a species of its own kind, confounding both left and right, and finding its identity from the center of God’s life.”
