This is almost to painful to watch as three Christians disrupt a Hindu prayer in the Senate.
I offer this post for three reasons:
- To confess and acknowledge the corporate brokenness that is within the Christian community. These folks may not see it the same way, but I see this not loving our neighbor as ourselves.
- To highlight a major difference in Christian thought about the Lordship of Christ. For me and for the communities I am part of I believe that Jesus is THE way to be connected and reconciled to God. For those who are on a different faith journey, Christ is A way and I will honor that journey and the ways that folks seek Truth.
- To challenge myself to hold these folks with whom I disagree in both theology and practice as brothers and sisters in Christ. How I respond and engage must reflect my own understanding of the complexities of Christ and not just about proving others wrong.
