The current statement by Lawyer Basic Jeff Sessions, defending the horrific separation of kids from refugee parents on the basis of his tortured reading of Romans chapter 13, as nicely as Donald Trump’s current statement that he desires Americans to treat him the way North Koreans obey their dictator, illustrate the vital want for our churches to stand publicly for a radically various version of the faith and for a quite various path for our nation.
A single way to manifest our commitment is to study the Bible with resistance-colored glasses, and invite our neighbors to join us. Start out a RESISTANCE BIBLE STUDY group in your church nowadays. Go public with it! Let your neighbors and your regional press know that you are supplying it. This totally free resource for progressive churches was written by Rev. Jim Burklo, author of Mindful Christianity, and is getting continually updated.
