What follows is not a political position statement. Ready for a completely different perspective of current events?
Obviously, no right-minded person is happy about what is going on right now.
The different perspective I bring is that it highlights how people react. It got me thinking about people who take an event like this from the mindset of “an activist”.
I don’t mean rioters, but people who want to help the situation. It highlights something I learned from a book called “Sacred Pathways”, by Gary Thomas.
The premise is that there are more ways to worship than just in church. Some folks are predisposed to serve Christ by addressing social injustice. Those who are moved to take action by helping, not adding to the problem, are to be commended.
Just remember the example we are given by Jesus is motivated by love, not hate.
