I have always thought that Christianity had been usurped by conservatives--extreme conservatives for the most part--until the past couple of years. What I've found is a large group of people who passionately love God but from a different point of view from my small town, Texas, Southern Baptist heritage. And finally I have found people that I can agree with!
A great resource I recently discovered is Sojourners (www.sojourners.com). Here is a group of believers who have not bought into the idea that, as I recently read in their newsletter, Jesus would want morality in the bedroom but not the boardroom.
How do we as followers of Jesus rise above the political fray and simply follow the lifestyle theology of Jesus, our rabbi?
