Today I Kneel

“There comes a time when silence is betrayal”. Martin Luther King, announcing his opposition to the Vietnam War in 1967.

I love baseball. I’ve been an avid Chicago Cubs fan for over 50 years.

But I love the United States of America more. I value its ideals and democratic processes.

But I love justice more, specifically that justice which is embodied in the life and ministry of Jesus.

Today I will kneel and pray for the reign of God to fill our nation and the earth with justice, peace, love, and joy.

    Come, let us>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>We the People of the United States

    build ourselves a city and a tower>>>>in Order to form a more perfect Union

    with its top in the heavens>>>>>>>>>establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility…

    and let us make a name for ourselves>>>and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity

    And the LORD said… Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the LORD dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.

    And some spoke the language of race, others of environmentalism, others of feminism, envy, greed, security, militarism..

    Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language…

    The cult of empire and the cult of Zeus are alive and well.

    When the LORD first spoke through Hosea, the LORD said to Hosea, “Go, take to yourself a wife of whoredom and have children of whoredom, for the land commits great whoredom by forsaking the LORD.”
