This isn’t an essay exclaiming, “Look! Not all of us are Christian Nationalists!” This isn’t an essay about politics. Instead, this is a warning flare reminding us of the danger when we look to policy and leaders as political messiahs. It warps our perception and erodes our compassion for our fellow man and those with different beliefs than us.
Excellent point. Policy leaders will disappoint. Every single time. That leads to disillusionment.
On the other hand, Jesus is always there for us, often in ways we least expect. That leads to hope, joy and a sense of wonder.
What is he up to? What will he do with me next?
I am relatively new to Medium but I admire your candor and courage to take on such topics. This story inspires me to attempt to do something similar.
Congratulations on building your tribe while being true to yourself and your faith in a person, not a religion, or a label.
