I’m writing this for me.
I’m writing it because I’ve found something wicked in my soul, something that I loathe.
There are things that matter that I’m afraid to write about because I know my audience and my audience doesn’t want to hear them…and my audience will leave me if I write as I should.
I’ve been forced by the timidity of my heart to choose between writing about all the things that God puts on my heart and writing about the things I know our readers will read.
If I write about some things, they will not hear me about other things.
Now, I will cleanse my soul.
The greatest problem facing the world today is the migration of the poor and oppressed from places of violence and poverty to places that offer a measure of hope and safety.
The problem isn’t going away.
It doesn’t matter is you’re liberal or conservative or something in between…the people keep moving.
There will be a day when we can no longer avoid the problem.
The wall will only fool us into thinking we’re safe.
We are much safer than the people that are on the move…millions of them all over the world.
What I believe I know about Jesus leads me to believe that attention must be paid to the realities all of us must face.
I don’t have answers, but I can’t be afraid of the conversation…even if my brethren in the church leave me for starting it.
It really is all about what I think I know about Jesus…and I think He’s on the move with the migrants.
He can also walk through walls…
