The Day after....Embracing the Courgage to Create

The day after... the political predictions are swept away like the morning sidewalk trash. Half of the country is rejoicing...the rest are grieving, angry, or indifferent. Both sides can give into the natural bent of human nature to criticize, to tear down, to our dark gravity.

Or we can have the courage to create.

A political leader cannot change your neighborhood, you can.
Government cannot heal hurting hearts, Jesus can.
The White House cannot give safe refuge to someone in need, your homes can.
The party of choice cannot give someone a place to belong, our churches can.

Can we care as much on November 5th as we do on November 4th?

Whatever your issue of choice - do something. Create the community you want.

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful." - Col 3.15
