What our faith is about…


Walter Brueggemann writes:

  • if you cringe at the boisterous, cocky new sound of religion in politics,
  • if you worry about the divisiveness of “red” and “blue” and 
  • if you are vexed that too many people claim to to be speaking directly for Christ…..

you might think that our Christian faith is all about getting the moral issues right and leveraging others to think and act the right way, as do we.  But if you think that, you are very wrong, because such contemporary loud posturing is not so much about faith as it is about anxiety and maintaining control in the world.  Our faith, I propose, is not about pinning down moral certitudes. It is, rather, about openness to wonder and awe in glad praise.                  Mandate to Difference p.1
