Christianity has a powerful tradition of naming truth to power and holding our elected leaders accountable. Unfortunately, we’ve put aside much of that tradition in recent decades in the interest of not getting too controversial. The past year has revealed to me the growing need of the Church in our public discourse, and for Christians of all walks of life to be unafraid to demand more from our leaders of all political parties. Jesus would expect it of us, no matter whom we voted for. I repent for the ways I’ve been negligent and afraid and commit to being braver, putting my faith only in Christ.
I recorded a video after I marched in Boston to express some of this and wanted to share it with you.
