So one of the reasons I started Heaven & El was to be an anti-dote to all that.
Every time something awful happens, that Baptist church somewhere in the US starts spouting off. And mostly people know that not all Christians are like that, I hope, but still, it doesn’t do much to help the likes of you and me.
When it’s happening way over there though, within an organisation I don’t know or like, it’s easy to pass it off as someone else’s problem.
But what about when it happens closer to home?
In your own church? Or a friend on Facebook? Or something written by a blogger you otherwise love to read and, usually, respect?
Then what do you do?
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – Buckminster Fuller
We can’t change people’s labels by fighting with them. We can not use words to persuade someone that we aren’t judgemental.
The only thing we have, the only tool at our disposal, is love.
And nope, not the mushy hearts and flowers and chocolates kinda love.
Love as a verb.
Love in action.
But how do we live love in action without it becoming another to-do? Something we tick off for the day?
That’s something we’ll be digging into in the inaugural issue of The Itchy Soul newsletter. It goes to print August 1st but if you hurry, there’s still time for you to get your paws on one of those bonus 1 on 1 sessions.
Only 8 left. Just saying 😉
