Unique “Power”

There are two ways in which the church in unique in the world of politics . . .

One, the church is the only organization that pulls together people from every single walk of life. I challenge you to find another group that reaches all races, all political stances, all classes and brings them under one umbrella like the church does. The mix of people in the room is completely unique in the world. We even saw this last Sunday in the group at our Newcomers Meet & Greet.

This of course includes both Republicans, Democrats, and everything in between.

As stated by the wise Uncle Ben in Spider-man, with great power comes great responsibility. But responsibility to do what? Sometimes we seem to wish the Bible was full of to do lists instead of stories. The Bible doesn’t really say, “Here is the platform that you will focus on politically in a three pronged approach-thus sayeth the Lord.”

But the Bible does make certain things clear about our job as Christians. Our responsibility always comes down to people, relationships, and existing as God’s hand in the world. How does that filter into our politics?

Stay tuned for Our Unique Mission . . .
