From someone WAAAYYYY smarter than I...

Comes this post. John over at Locusts and Honey has once again managed to very eloquently say pretty much what I would, were I capable.

Not only that, but every week he publishes the Methodist Blogs Weekly Roundup, which is choc full of yummy goodness.

I constantly struggle with the areas in which I fall far short of the the mark set in scripture. Every single day. I wonder at some of our nation's actions and the response. As Christians, we are under extra scrutiny-- there are many people out there who want nothig more than to see us stumble, either as individuals, or collectively. As a nation, the USA faces much the same. Many times, we are between the proverbial rock and a hard place.

Does this mean that I think we are correct all the time? No, but it does mean that I believe we are striving.

This point in particular strikes a chord:

Dave never answered. His pacifism prevented him from proposing a military solution, and therefore prevented him from proposing any solution. But then again, his post was entitled "Being Activists...", so perhaps his point wasn't to solve a problem, to be an activist about a problem.


What does an activist do? What is the point of activism, other than to assuage our own guilty feelings?

My brain is beginning to hurt...
